    I am a proud new momma of 4 Easter Egger pullets and 2 Production Reds. The Reds were straight run so I wondering if I could get some help in determining if they are Roos. They are both 5-6 weeks old.
    This first one has a bit of white fluff still on its head. It had a larger comb than the other but a rather small tail.

    This one is really all feathered out. It has a smaller and paler comb but has a longer and fuller tail.

    Their coop is currently being built so they all live in my spare bedroom for now.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    So far I'd vote the first one is a cockerel from the amount of comb and wattle, and the second a pullet.

    And Hello :frow and Welcome To BYC!

    Congratulations on your new flock!

    I agree, the first one is a cockerel and the second is a pullet.
