    Okay first question is how old are they? They look good , here is my guess from what I could see from the pic's.
    1. Hen
    2. Roo
    3. Hen in front, Roo in back
    4. Roo , Definately
    5. Roo left and Hen right
    6. Roo
    Now granted this is just my thoughts and I am no expert. I have Buffs that are 6 weeks and their combs are barely seen yet and one that has a very slightly bigger then the rest but none that size. but the age differance may be a big factor. The picture with the 2 blacks in it looks like hen front and roo back. Hope that helps. Trudy [​IMG] [​IMG]
