    I'm a clueless newbie and I'm wondering if I have roos or hens? If you know the breed I'd also be interested in knowing that as well. Any help is appreciated thank you.

    I'll be in the barn!
    The top one is looking a bit rooish to me, but you'll have to wait a few weeks to know for sure. I personally don't know the breed.

    I think your suspicions are correct.

    I have two gold laced Wyandottes, they are 12 weeks old, are they Roos or hens? The other ones that are the same age seem to pick on these two really bad.. So they are always by themselves foraging

    These are a few of my four week old chicks. Really suspecting that my Cochin is a roo. The others are EE and OE mixes. Your thoughts?

    I just noticed yesterday that this buff's comb and waddles had suddenly shown up, while her/his sister's hasn't. They're both 4.5 weeks old. Do you think we might have a cockerel on our hands? I tried getting a good, straight-on shot but she (or he) seemed to be a bit camera shy.

    Only 3 weeks but I'm already seeing the signs and I've read that Cochin Roos can come in strong at 3-4 weeks... Feel free to make my day and tell me I'm crazy but I'm not too hopeful
