    What are the ages? I am going to say hens, but without knowing the age it's hard to tell. They do look like my 25 wk. old BLRW though. [​IMG]

    Those are girls. [​IMG] My BLRW boy isn't even 4 months yet and there is NO WAY you would confuse him with a hen.

    Just wanted to show you what I mean. This was taken a couple of weeks ago...so around 3 1/2 months old. My girls look like yours...this is Hansel. [​IMG]

    i say it's a roo because of the feathers on it's neck but it could be a hen though because i had a hen that had her feathers like falling in the neck but when she started laying i could tell it's a hen i know i don't help much all of the others look like pullets but i don't know about that one

    Thanks guy and gals! They look the same but I was confused because of the neck feather too. So I felt they were the same gender but didn't know which one! [​IMG]
