I have decided I have one roo and 4 hens. I may change my mind about it again, but today, I think that is what I have. These birds are driving me nuts! None of them have combes or waddles. Only the roo looking one has long tail feathers. I guess I won't really know until they start laying eggs!!

You will know by 9 weeks or so. And you will start to see 2 little horns if it is a roo, and there will start to be saddle feathers. If you still see no comb (horns) then I am thinking you have pullets.

Feel free to post a pic. 4 pullets and one cockeral would be awesome.

They are 3 month old. They were hatched June 16th. Still no combs or waddles.





This one I thought was a roo but now think is a hen:


I also thought this one might be a roo, but now think is a hen also:


I took these 2 weeks ago, I think. I will try and get updated ones tomorrow. The roo in the first picture is a lot bigger then any of the others and his tail feathers are getting longer too. The others are not.
