    This is our first time having chickens and we have been waiting to see if either of these are roosters. One has had a red comb since about 2 weeks of age and has always been quite large. They are roughly
    11 weeks old. Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    They look like female to me. How old are they? Almost 5 months?
