    Look closely at the crest feathers. Roosters have pointed ones, hens have rounded feathers on their heads. Easy.

    When males are young they have round crest like females but the feathers will be pointed.
    As they get older, the feathers grow out and it becomes more noticeable.

    i think they are all females, the 2 that im not 100% sure have the crest feathers that the back of their head rounded but the front part is looks like its at a point but they're not grown out all the way yet, im guessing it'll round out since the back is

    If the feathers come to a point at the end, you have 2 roosters.
