    I don't know which one! They look the same to me. I was supposed to have 7 pullets. They are 9 weeks old now and as I went to let them out of the coop this morning someone crowed. I don't know who it was. I looked at my daughter as she said "what was that?" and then he did it again. Other than seeing him crow, how can I tell? I can't have a rooster here and he'll have to go. I think I know someone who can take him once I find out who "he" is. Can you tell? Or are both of these roosters? Or is it someone else? I'm so confused![​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]w.backyardchickens.com/forum/uploads/64301_img_1444_2.jpg[/img]

    The other 2 pictures don't seem to have loaded so here they are again, each bird separately.[​IMG]w.backyardchickens.com/forum/uploads/64301_img_1444_2.jpg[/img]

    Is there a definite way to tell at this age other than the crowing?

    Quote:The combs and wattle that big and red at 9 weeks is a pretty sure sign, plus they look to have the beginnings of some tail feathers.

    I'm saying they are both roos. The one in front in the top pic for certain.
