    These chicks are 5 weeks old. Do you see hens or roos in these pictures? Thank you for any info!

    The ones with a bit of red on their combs and wattles are definitely roosters

    Agreed. They have tiny tails, which is a sign of a roo.

    Tiny tails are NOT a definite sign of a rooster. [​IMG]
