    Still trying to determine if I have boys or girls here. At first I thought I had a roo... but now not so sure.

    Here are a few pics...

    The First pic shows the bird in question in the front of the photo. The Second pic shows all the birds.
    The one that I think might be a rooster developed red comb and waddles very early on, but is sweet and tame. Dont know if that helps in determining.
    Thanks so much for your help!
    All the best,
    Neil

    In the photo with several birds, the one in the back that I think is a roo is the one that is 12 weeks or so old. The others are a couple weeks younger.

    That’s awfully young for any pullet to be as red as any of those combs. My rock in my avatar didn’t look like that until 19 weeks or so.

    I was also paying really close attention to the tail feathers... and it looked to me more like a pullets tail according to the link for langshans on here

    The blue one is looking like a cockerel, and the others might be as well, but I'd wait a couple weeks to see if any get pointed saddle feathers.
