    do you have better body shots? I don't see any saddle feathers. Also how old are they?

    depends how old they are...could be hens at point of lay? they dont 'scream' roo at me to be honest but a better side body shot (full on side, not angled, showing the hens backend too so we can look at the tail/saddle feathers) would really help and the age [​IMG]

    More pictures of the same chickens mention above. They are marans and are 9 weeks old. Roo's or Hens?

    Yep i am sticking with what i said, if they are only 9 weeks thats an aweful big cob for a 9 week old pullet, i still think they are roos, and look at number 3's tail it looks pointed in a few places
