    For me it's too early but I see 2 that I would guess are roos. The 2nd picture, 2nd from back with the head to the right I would vote is a roo.

    The white ones with the redish feathers over the shoulders look like red sex link roos, which would make the mostly red one in the front of the last pic a RSL pullet.

    you cannot go on color. sex-linking doesn't hold true the next generation. it is a little early to be sure, but in the picture of six, the redest one up front is certainly a roo. the other two with red are also questionable.

    all look to be roos to me, the only exception may be 1 or 2 of the whiter looking ones
