    We purchased 6 baby chicks a few months back and now I think we have 4 roosters out of the 6. Can you tell me from the pics if these are roosters? They just started crowing, so I think they are. In pic 3 the 2 lighter ones I know are hens, it is the darker ones that I think are roosters.

    ...You can tell which are male and which are female.

    The dark ones with the big combs and wattles, and the upright tales are roos.
