    These are the first two BOs that I've ever owned, and the man I got them from thought they were hens. Maybe he's right, but I'm really not sure. They are about 4 months old. The first three pics are one chicken, and the last three are the second chicken. If they are roos, I have to rehome them because I live in a subdivision. Thanks for your help.

    The first one I'm going with rooster. The other one I'd say hen but I can't really tell in those pictures.

    Ohhhhh nooooooo! I can't believe this. I have given away more roos than I have hens, and at this point, I only have 10 chickens total!

    Thank you both, Chikenobsession and RoostersCrow,HenDeliver! I guess I'll be looking for two more homes or going to a swap meet next weekend.
