    I have 13 bantams about 12 weeks old and a 6 week old turkey(not sure if you can help with it). Need to figure out who are roos. I will add more pics tonight but this is what I have available now.

    You will need to post close up clear head shots of each separate chick.

    Yeah, I agree. Clearer shots will be a huge help! I'm not 100% sure, but in the 2nd picture that reddish chicken looks kinda roosterish ;)

    Birds 3 and 6 in the most recent posting order are both male as evidenced by their plumage patterns. Is bird #4 also 12 weeks of age - if so, that bird is also male.
