    Are the two barred rock chickens in the picture together roos? They are 14-15 weeks old.

    This one is definitely a roo. Those other two are the same age.

    x2, although it is hard to tell through the cages. you need to give them more room also.

    I was thinking they were but was hoping they weren't.
    It's funny how they can look so different.
