    These guys are just over 5 weeks old. They are an EE/RIR mix. I think one for sure is a roo, but not sure about the other two. [​IMG]

    I think the one on the right (behind?) is a roo. I'm hoping the one in front is a hen. The one in back is the smallest of the 3.

    How about this one? I'm hoping for a hen here, too!

    I'm preparing myself for 3 roos...

    What do you think???

    There is a slight possibility the one in front of the first pic could be a hen based on I don't see any wattles and RIR hens develope large combs too. [​IMG] fingers crossed for you!
