    Hey guys! This is my first year with chickens so in pretty clueless but I think I may have 2 roosters on my hands. The first pictures are of my RIR . I am thinking Nugget on the right is a Roo. I put him next to chick norris who I was thinking may be a hen. I got then from the same run. They are about 8 weeks old.

    Grey bird. (petry) I'm afraid he's going to be a roo too. Thanks for your help![​IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    Is it safe to say that at this point they would have combs if they were roosters? I have 4 others without a combs. Or with tiny ones.

    Petrie is a cockerel and so is Nugget. Chick Norris appears to be a pullet at this stage
