    I say front female, back male. It has a longer tail and it's rounded.

    You should be able to sex them both yourself just by looking at their sides...If they were males they would have pointed saddle feathers by now. If they don't have them at 6 months they are very likely to be female.

    I have checked and rechecked them. The roo from the hatch had long ones already. They ones that are left spar on and off with each other but are still scared of the older hens. I am just a worry wart with these.
