    I'm afraid I have all roosters, since their hackle and saddle feathers seen pretty pointed, but I'm hopeful since some of their combs look smaller. Please tell me I'm wrong that I have all roosters! They're hatch mates, all 20 weeks old.

    Here's one that I know is a rooster to compare to the others.

    the edge of insanity
    At 20 weeks, all I see are three hens that are about to start laying. Yes, #1 is a rooster. But 2-4 look like hens to me.

    OMG, I will be so happy! Their dang hackle and saddle feathers were so pointed, I was getting very depressed about having no hens! Thank you very much for the quick reply!
