    Yes. For most barred birds, lighter birds with a larger, darker comb and darker wattles are likely to be a roo. Darker birds with a smaller, lighter comb and lighter wattles are more likely to be girls.

    two roos and a hen.
    Just curious how they get along? I also have two roos and possibly a hen that are only 7 weeks old and the one roo is very mean to the other two, so much I have separated him from them.

    I had 9 cuckoos last spring and the males are much, much lighter... you can tell them apart as soon as they have a good amount of feathers.
    So I would agree with 2 roos, 1 hen.

    Good luck!

    How old are yours?
