    These are 2 chickens that are approximately 9 weeks old. They are not crowing, but they are fighting with each other very aggressively. The other chicks that I was sure were hens have died, but they were smaller with almost no combs/wattles. Any opinions on the sex of these 2 would be really helpful. Thanks!!

    Look like roos by comb and wattles and sound like roos.
    You really can't tell by the spurs because hens can have them too and some roos don't get them for a while (like 1 yr).
