    Ok two.

    Please help, I'm wanting to buy these two but I need to make sure they are hens. Any ideas? They are two months old. After reading the other thread, I'm afraid the second one might be a roo.

    I'm obviously new at this, but I would say the second one is definitely a roo! It has waddles, and it's crest is already spiky.

    Both look like males to me. Spiky crests, and their wattles are developed and red for 8 weeks.

    And on the second picture that bird has pointed saddle feathers. Definitely roo's.

    The first one may be a pullet, but the second one is definitely a roo.

    I was thinking one girl one boy...bottom one for sure a boy but not sure of the top one. I would trust perfectly polish's opinion tho. So prob both boys.
