    I think I might be 2 for 4 on my flock... This one I know is Roo but idk what mix he is maybe sebright/ bantam Cochin. He's soooo cute but we live in a neighborhood and I can't have two Roos [​IMG] the lady I got them from thankfully said she'd switch me out some chicks but still [​IMG]

    The second one does look like a rooster, the first one I would wait and see.

    Agree the second bird is a cockerel. The first may be...how old is it?

    Then I do think the first bird is a cockerel also. too much comb for a pullet of that age.
