    Looking for your help, guys! I've got four birds that I need to figure out if they're hens or roos. Two are brown/multi, one is white, and one is black and white. (We need to get rid of the roos, per law). Thanks in advance!!! (My guess is the white and white/black one are hens). 20181018_172207.jpg 20181018_172210.jpg 20181018_172236.jpg 20181018_172241.jpg 20181018_172310.jpg 20181018_172315.jpg

    Pic 1 is definitely a roo, I might be wrong but I’m pretty sure it’s 3 Roos and 1 hen

    So you think the black and white one is also a roo (possibly)?

    I think that they are all cockerels except for possibly the bird in the 2nd picture.

    I think, it has a tail like a rooster, But that might just be the breed

    To me they all look like Roos, except the white one in 2nd pic...the black & white may not be so obvious (& I could also be mistaken...) but the tail is like that if a Roo.

    If you don't mind me asking, what makes you think the white one is a roo?
