    We are needing some help. The white one. Rooster or hen? The black ones a rooster. But the white one looks like a hen to me[​IMG][​IMG]

    I am sorry but the white one is a roo he has big legs and saddle feathers. The black speckled one looks like a hen to me unless the black one has crowed. Correct me if I am wrong

    The whiter one is definitely a rooster, the barred one could be as well, I can't clearly see that one in your pictures, I do think I see saddle feathers on the second photo.

    I am fairly certain the white one is a rooster. The barred one could be a hen from what I see. Hard to tell from that picture.

    Ok awesome. The barred one we know is a rooster. But the white one was in question as to the sex. So that helps a lot. Thank you!
