    Anyone have any opinion of gender, on what I suspect are roos. There are two BLRW...I have a hard time telling them apart! And the one Orp on the bottom of the page. Sorry for the through the fence pictures, they are a bit camera shy!

    With the red combs/wattles and the patchy color on the wings, they look like boys.

    Look to be hens to me, at that age they would be showing more signs of being a rooster with saddle feathers, neck feathers, redder combs and wattles.
