    I was afraid of that. I wanted one to be a roo, but not both of them.

    The first one is definitely a roo, but I'm not so sure about the other one. Looks like our hens did when they were pullets.

    Top one is roo, bottom one is a pullet (at least based on the way our Barred Rocks looked at that age).

    I think the second one might be a girl.
