    I answered your other post, age is very important in determining sex. Seabright roos have heny feathers - in other words both sexes look the same. Your other, is not showing pointed saddle or hackle feathers, et, so I cannot in good conscience proclaim him a rooster.

    How are they fighting? It could just be fighting over pecking order.

    hens/pullets will do the same type of fighting and I have even had a pullet and a rooster do the same thing. At least in my flock. Welcome to BYC
