    If y'all have pics of your Hens & Roos....Would someone post pics of them, please? As I said in another post, we believe we have 5 Roos, but it's not wrote in stone. No Crowing yet, so there's still hope we have a few Hens out of the bunch. I've read that some clues to determine if they're Roo's are the tail feathering, along with the cone size and waddles. My RIR's are almost 10 & 12 weeks old, and if anyone has pics of theirs in those age range, that would be wonderful. I'll take some pics of mine and post them also....but please be gentle, lol cause I know the truth will hurt. I've gotten extremely attached to the 5, and it's going to be hard to give up 4 if that's the case.
    Thanks In Advance!!!
