Quote:Thank you! I am concerned because their tail feathers have started to round, like my 2 I was told were roos. But their combs and wattles are barely anything.

The "girls" look nothing like the "boys" but the girls combs are starting to get larger and a little pinker, plus the tail feathers are starting to round. They were "free" chicks from Ace Hardware when you bought a 50lb bag of chick starter and I was told they are almost always boys so I was so afraid I'd end up with all roos. Thanks!

The one in that back is a girl, the other 2 red guys are boys for sure if there the same age? Top Picture is a little girl too.
