    Someone near is giving these lovely birds away. Trouble is I can't tell if they're girls or boys, please help. Thanks.

    How old? They really look like roos. You can see what looks like saddle feathers on the back left.

    All cockerels at that age. Pullets don't start to pink up until after 4 months of age.
