    At under 12 weeks old, those are both cockerels.

    Ya I agree looks like you have two Roos. I raise barred rocks. And the lighter coloring gives them away most of the time. Plus the first ones tail feathers scream Roo.

    Thanks for your replies! Oh well... There's still room for two :) the one at the back is smaller, smaller comb, had dark legs as a chick and no tail feathers at the moment which is why I thought he was a she... Wishful thinking maybe?!! its my first time owning this breed...they are so friendly!

    The one in back might have a smaller comb, but it's just as red. Pullets don't even start turning pink until after 14 weeks old.
