    I usually look at the difference in the shape of the tail feathers too. Most of the time the Roos don't have anything but fuzzy at that age. The pullets tend to have definite shape to tail feathers.

    Looks like you have 2 roos. I`m 85% sure by looking at the pics. Neither of them appear to be female to me. I hope I`m wrong.
    good luck. [​IMG]
