    Below I have posted 3 pics 2 I think are roosters, and the other I think is a pulley. Any advice? Or thoughts? One has very long wing and tail feathers, the other two have shorter wing and almost no tail feathers

    Only 2 pictures are posted. They're too young and the lights making it hard to determine, you need to post their ages and breed. Try again when they're 6 - 8wks.

    Ok, now pic #3 showed up.

    too young and the red light prevents us from seeing true colors of comb, legs, etc. Let them fully feather out first 6-8 weeks of age

    What do we think? Hens or Roos? My guess is too on both, their combs are both very red, and also, they are much bigger than the others, and color patterns in the feathers are much different! They are about 4-5 weeks old.
