    I saw this ad that this guy was giving away his roosters, so I went to go get one and when I got their they were so pretty I got all of them. Plus he had told me if I did not get them someone else was coming later to get them to eat, so I figured what the heck. I thought a few of them looked like they might be hens, but not having a lot of experience I was not sure and was hoping someone could help me out. He said they are about 8 months old. I do not see any spurs on them or anything like that, so I am at a loss as to if they might be hens. But I do have a 4 month old turken and it is already showing a larger comb and the waddles?? ( the things that hang down on their face when they are roos) There are 4 total and the last pic is kind of blurry. I tried to get at least two pictures of each.

    Thanks
    Jen

    How can you tell they are roos? By the tail how high it is? Or how big the comb is?

    Thanks for the post.
