    These guys/gals are about to hit their 3 month mark next month and so now Im wondering a few things. I have 3 maybe 4 roo's and just want to double check. If these guys are all roo's, when should I separate them? And could I divvy them up like, 1 roo and 2 hens in one run type of thing? What age will the roo's start mounting the girls? And one last question, what age should I clip their wings? Just in case I have to let a roo free range my back yard until I get a 3rd run made. Here are a couple pictures. They are wearing colored leg bands to help out. The first one Im thinking is a girl with just with a strong roo face and the other 3 I'm pretty sure will be roo's But you tell me. Im no expert.

    You can also see brown and blue in the background a bit to compare next to the others.
