Bantam Chocolate Orpingtons are they roos? Lemon Cuckoo Orpingtons hens?

    bought some eggs, hatched about Jan 28th. I am assuming the chocolates are roos, but since I dont have any that dont have combs, I thought I better see if someone could positively say yep those are roos, With the Lemons, I dont have any with larger combs yet, can you tell from any of these pictures that they are for sure hens? THanks for any help!


    ughh cant get my pictures to load here, hoping you could go to my profile or copy and paste the above, sorry for the hassle

    Thanks, we have some full size orpington hens and they have combs and waddles, so I am afraid to assume that the bantams are all roos, the little black one is starting to crow so I was assuming the chocolates are roos too.
