    I have 5, 5 month old buffs. 2 are starting to look suspiciously like Roos. Their combs are much larger than the rest and tail feathers look suspicious. No one is crowing. No one seems to be protecting/fighting the rest. They don't seem much bigger than the other girls. I've included pictures and would appreciate any feedback. I'm in the city so I'm not allowed to have Roos.

    Three is the only one I'm on the fence about- but the rest are certainly all beautiful hens.

    :yesss:Awesome! Thank you all so much. I have 2 Buffs that are 2 years old and I love them so much, I bring one inside. These girls aren't quite as sweet yet but they're lovely!

    3 was the one I was most suspicious of too, but by 5 months, wouldn't she be crowing by now if she were a he?
