    Help - bought these two at about 10 weeks old thinking they were Barred Rocks. They are 22+ weeks now. Any ideas? Roos or pullets?

    Thanks!

    Roosters for sure and also crosses. From their combs, I'd say they are Wyandotte crosses.

    So are the long feathers on the necks and wings indicative of a roo? And about when do roo's start to crow?

    That is exactly (other than the comb, of course) what my male chicks grow into when I use a blue roo over barred girls. So I would say you probably have a blue wyandotte cross over a barred rock hen, or something similar.
