    I am selling 2 roo's and I need to make sure these are roo's. I was sure at first but now I am second guessing myself!
    No beginning of spurs, teeny tiny wattles, the comb well you can see that yourself! Oh and no crowing from these 2 yet either alhough I do have some the same age crowing. Behavior they act like the girls, but the hackles are throwing me. And the other roo's do not treat then like roo's. I am stumped!

    I'm thinkin' roos. Pretty-maybe they just haven't settled into their rooness yet. I have one that has been crowing for weeks but just started doing the dance for the ladies.

    First one looks like a roo to me, but the second looks like a pullet.

    That is what I have thought! I want so badly for at least one to be hen. They are so pretty and very sweet. I have a 6 hens but really did not want to get rid of either one of these 2. Please someone tell me there is a chance! [​IMG]

    Looks like two cockerels to me, since it looks like they have streamers

    You guys are killling me. I kinda knew before I posted but was so badly hoping I was wrong. Oh well! I really appreciate the help. I will update if either by chance lays an egg. Any of your roo's lay an egg yet? haha. If they continue to get along I may keep both but I will have to decide which one when the time comes. Dang I really wanted to keep both of these.
