So I realize these pictures aren't the best but I'm so stumped on if I have hens or roos, one week it looks like 3 roos another is hens I just can't tell!

I can see a cockerel at the bottom right side. Generally a BR cockerel will have white bars wider than the dark bars (in males it is gray barring ) yellow legs & feet.

Pullets will have narrow white bars and wider Black barring. They usually have a dark wash over their yellow legs.

It's really less confusing to us, if you have individual photos., named or numbered with photo showing head and comb, from front. And natural standing side profile, so we can look for gender features at hackles & saddle.

I'll have to wait until hubby gets home to hold them still lol
Holding is not good because most of the time---where you are holding needs to be seen----your hands covering it. Its best to just give them a few minutes with some lite scattered feed---then you should be able to get a side profile shot---squatting down would be better than standing over them.

Took better pictures and some very simple names (I don't want to name them until we know who we are keeping) lol picture#1 is fantail, #2 is small black beak, #3 and #4 are plain beak, and finally #5 is big black beak
