    They are almost 5 months old.
    There has been no crowing at all.
    Their combs and waddles are bigger than the other chicks.
    What do you think?

    I'd say yes - but don't see their whole body (ie feathers on back and tail - esp. on Red.) I know I was really worried about this because one of mine in particular has really big comb and wattles - but they are all girls.
    Pretty soon you'll know for sure. Pretty flock!

    I'm going to say no as I think they are both roos especially the BR.

    I can't tell for sure on the first one, but my gut says rooster on that one. The second one I am about 90% sure is a rooster, based on the pointed hackle feathers. Full body pics would help.

    The chicken in the first picture is almost certainly a hen, while the one in the third pic could be a rooster, but is probably a hen too. [​IMG]

    The BR looks like a hen to me, I might be worng. But I'm pretty sure the second one is a roo.

    My thoughts would be the red is a hen and the black/white is a roo. I have ones exactly like them and I really thought the black/white was a hen, turns out to be a roo. All my red ones are hens.

    Full body pics are needed so we can see the tail/saddle feathers. I'd say girls for now, but I'm iffy on a few.
