    Im not sure what I have in my flock these are newer to the flock and Id like to know if they are Roos or Pullets and also the breeds. I numbered them to hopefully make it easier.

    All of my 9 weeker roos have MUCH larger combs and wattles. So I would say all your are pullets.

    1, 2, and 8 are definitely male. Are you absolutely certain of age? At 9 weeks old there should be no trace of chick down at all. Some of those look like they are closer to 6 weeks old.

    Thats what I was thinking too. Just looking at combs and wattles only #8 is showing and that one is a mean little one he beating up on everyone even my older chickens. But didn't think I could be that lucky only 1 roo out of 11 hatched. lol
