    I traded out 6 roo's for 6 more hoping for all hens, of course one is def a roo as he wakes me every morning about 3. Two are my originals hatched Jul 3. The first one is one of my originals, hen yes???[​IMG]

    The black and white one is actually black with very pretty bluish green hue around base of neck. I found it sitting in a nest box today where I suspect it is the only one that's been in them arranging the hay, but to no avail, no eggs.

    Quote:Me too but hopefully I'm wrong. [​IMG] But I'm not an expert. Maybe some pictures of the hackle feathers also would help.

    buff in the first pic looks female and the wyandotte looks female too. the red one with the black in the tail-feathers looks like a roo. in the last pic the buff in the back of the pic looks female (?) and the one in the front looks like a roo. looks like you might have a couple buff and red roos

    ETA: try to make this a little easier.

    first one: hen/
    second one: hen
    all the others look like roos

    DRAT!!!! I just can't win with these birds...lol! I figured as much. I think I may just go the sex link route and buy from a real hatchery! I started with twelve in Jul, lost two, 8 were roo's. Now more roo's! I just want at least one expensive egg to squeeze out!

    Fourth down is a wyandotte. Not sure, but I would agree with others that they are boys!

    The first two are definite hens. I see at least two BO roos. I can't tell which of the three are in the following photos, so I don't know if all three are roos or not. The RIR... I'm hesitant about. I can see what MIGHT be saddle feathers, but then again, they could just be droopy hen feathers... My eyes aren't very good. Sorry!
