    I can't tell from the photos but a good way I use to sex chickens is the feathers on their backs near their tails/butt will be pointy on a roo. Its really hard to explain verbally.. Haha. [​IMG]

    The white is a cockerel. Pointy feathers in hackle and base of tail. Also red coming thru in shoulders and over back. That's a boy thing too
