    The tips of the crest feathers are pointy on roos and rounded on hens. So look very closely at those feathers, I can't tell from the photo.

    They ARE cuties !! I have a Polish Roo...they are so fun !!
     
  8. They look like 2 pullets to me. Watch for comb development and hackle feathers, which you'll only see on the roos.
