    6 months old. I need to know if the 3 in the middle with the larger combs are hens or roos? I think they are roos....[​IMG] [​IMG] In the other pic, I know the one on the left is a hen but the other two?

    It is kind of hard to see the picture, but at 6 months a rooster would be crowing.

    I see two roos and one hen in the second picture. With barnevelders the dark ones are roos and the ones with the lacing are hens.

    Edited to add:
    The second picture showing the single roo isn't a Barnevelder (or is a mix). If you live in Europe, I guess it could be a blue laced Barnevelder.

    I sold a BLR wyandotte x Barnevelder cockerel that could of been your roo's twin early this spring. LOL

    The roo in the last pic is what got me so confused! It came with the barnie chics and I knew early on it was rooster but thought how weird the others that look like roos dont look like him.... mass confusion. Gotta luv straight run purchases. This has been a huge help. The blue/roo has got to be a cross. He is very pretty I wish I could have a roo I would keep him. So the others that are dark with large combs are roos too. Problem solved, with all your help. So kind, I knew I could count on the nice people here.
