    we have two bantam chicks from a straight run. they are golden and silver sebrights. they are 6 weeks old and both of them seem to be trying to crow already? is there any way to tell if they are for sure roo's? we cannot keep them if they are, so my little girl is dying to know what they are? please help.

    If they are crowing, they are roos.
