Are they pullets or roos..

Beths chickens

In the Brooder
Nov 20, 2020
Theses guys were given to me about 5 1/2 weeks ago when my sister went into her barn and there they were in the middle of the run. She had no clue of these little guys. I have had them now 5 1/2 weeks. I have no clue if roos or pullets. If they are roos i will have to get rid of them as i am not allowed to have them in the city.

Hmm... Now that these are closer, you might just have to wait a couple of weeks. It seems a little early to tell now. Maybe someone who is more experienced can figure it out.

Do we know if they were hatched eggs from your sister’s flock, or random birds that just showed up? Any neighbours nearby they could have come from?
I’m going to stick with my guess of both cockerels; I think the one with slightly less comb development is just a little further behind. I’ve hatched enough boys this year, lol, and every time there’s at least one that’s a little behind everyone else. I’ve got 2x 8 week old chicks right now that are similar to yours in that way, actually. The one has a bigger comb, more wattle development, and the other looks like he should be a couple of weeks younger based on comb/wattles, although they hatched together.
