    Looks like it, and both of those birds look like boys.

    aw man- I sure hope I dont have two roosters on my hands. I will have to rehome if they are. Neither one of these have spurs or spur bumps. what do I look for to tell me they are boys. I was told they are hens when we got them as chickies.

    How old are they?
    I have a BA hen, she had far less comb & wattle at a similar age. Sorry.
