    ok i got these two together, said they were both roosters. could the lighter one possibly be a hen? oh i hope so. they are the same age and the other one in the back doesnt have a dark of a comb. the one up from also has distinctive waddles. the one in the back hasnt gotten much yet. it also hides under the darker roo. the darker roo crows, and i havent heard this one do it

    Looks like a cockerel. He's still got pointed hackle feathers.

    I think they are roo's. Do both of them have saddle feathers? (If you don't know already, those are the feathers on the back right before the tail..... I think)
