    My hubby is convinced we have at least two Roos in our flock, given what I've read I'm not convinced, I know this picture is poor but I'm curious if what you can see are the any that look like possible Roos?[​IMG]

    There's no roosters there. A BSL roo looks like a Barred Rock.

    Sometimes when hens get scared or hear something they kind of make a weird noise that can be mistaken as a crow.....But if those are BSL then there is no way there can be a roo.... as posted earlier all bsl roos are barred....Nice pullets by the way...how old afre they 13 weeks?
