    I am telling the kids it looks mighty cocky with the bigger comb but they wanted opinions from BYC before I got rid of it so here is a few pictures. Then I am undecided on the buff and have included 2 pictures of it. I am usually pretty good a determining the sex but lately I have not done so great. (I think that I just like the colors of some and just trying to make them pullets when they are not.)

    The BO looks like a girl to me. I couldn't really guess on the other one. How old are they?

    I would have to go look in my books to make sure but the BO is 3 months or so and the other is a little ove 2 months I think.​

    I think the first one is a roo. I have had 2-3 yard crosses look like that and all were roos. Actually got one outside right now but is to late or I would go take a pic.
    [​IMG] [​IMG] This one was from last summer, But he had a heart attack or something and is no longer here. I don't know much about BO. Depends on the age as far as the comb goes, but I would not trust a comb. How do the feathers look? Can't see no roo feathering in the pic but he/she could be too young.

    The first one is most definitely a cockerel the second looks like a hen.
