    I know for sure the bigger one is. The crowing helped. :-D
    But I wasn't sure about the smaller one. I'm starting to think it is a roo because he and the larger one sometimes go at it. But he hasn't crowed. What do you guys think?

    Hopefully you can post a photo for us. Trying to identify a chicken without a photo is like shooting in the dark.

    Dang it! That means I have two Roos and two hens. That's not going to work well.
