I'm trying to get all hens, but I'm good with having 1 roo, if I get 2 or more Roos ill just give 2 to a friend, I won't kill them :) ... I got them at my local feed store, they were sopposed to be all pullets because they were in the RIR pullet box, but you know how it goes... Sometimes they are wrong.. I appreciate all the feedback anyone wants to give me

they really are to young though but if i had to guess right now the last pic looks like a pair with one have a redder comb than the other

. Yes, one of my chicks has a very big comb but the comb or the size of the chicken isn't big

. A pair of what?

A pair typically refers to a male and female of the same species.

When I made my initial guesses, I thought pics 2 & 3 were of two different birds. Looking back at them I realize pics 2 & 3 are of the same bird. The last pic, the bird in the foreground is so blurry it is hard to guess much on it. While only the middle photos show a very red comb, I would be suspicious of the large comb on the first bird, even though it is not yet red. A comb that large at an age when they haven't fully feathered out yet, is likely to turn red shortly. I hope I am wrong though, especially since you got them out of the pullet bin.

. The one in the background of #3 is the #2 so which number/ numbers do you think are Roos? Or pullets?
