    I got a bunch of golden comets this spring as chicks. I still cant figure out hen from rooster.the only thing i can see different about any of them is some have pointy tail feathers and some rounded.some have a few red spots.the first pic is 1 with rounded tail feathers. The second 1 is pointed tail feathers. No crows no eggs but. They were supposed to be straight run but im starting to worry someone sold me all thier roosters

    Those look like sex link roosters.

    Better pics would help, and the age of the bird. But females should be brown/red/gold.

    We cross leghorns to RIRs and our chickens look just like this. The rounded tail in your upper pic looks very henlike. Unfortunately you're right in assuming the "pointy" feathered guys are probably roos.
