    Hey y'all. I recently purchase 4 hens and Im concerned one is a roo. They were 8-9 weeks old when I got them. They are now 11-13 weeks. maybe a little older? One of the buff orps has much redder bigger waddles and comb. Can anyone tell me if its a roo? I can't have a rooster so I need to find out before the crowing begins....Thanks!

    (the three together in the second pic are supposed to be the same age as the single one) The chicken in question is in the first picture alone.

    ROO????

    The Orpington looks like a cockerel. So is the Faverolles in the second picture.
