    The top 2 are looking MORE like roos than hens, I should say. They may surprise you though. I would hang onto them for a little while to see.

    Where did you get them?

    i'd like to see a better shot of the combs. they look like pullets to me, but some close ups of combs would be helpful.

    are the combs yellow or pink?

    They look like pullets to me too. But it's hard to tell at this age. How old are they? My two were 10 weeks old before I could tell one was a roo. He started trying to crow at 12 weeks. Funniest noise I've ever heard! [​IMG]

    they should be pink by now if they are males. but there is always one that will throw you, of course!

    eta-second pic makes the one on the left looks like a roo, but I wouldn't commit to that yet.
