    Can someone tell me if the two black ones are hens or roos? I got them from a neighbor when they were chicks. He thought they were all hens. They're about 5 months old. Yesterday the Red Cornish Bantam starting crowing so Marie must be a Mario! I already have one very sweet tempered Red Cornish Bantam roo and five other hens. If there are more roos will they get along? Thank-you

    It looks like you may have one pullet and one cockerel.

    I think they're both roosters.

    I could be wrong, but I agree with Donrae that both look like roosters.

    the gold you see coming in near the tail are their saddle feathers which means both are roosters
