    After reading and looking at all these wonderful pictures I am starting to get paranoid that I might have a full flock of Roos. These are the 2 that worry me the most. They are 7 weeks old. [​IMG]

    I am learning myself. Sometimes you will just have to wait and see. I had some I thought was roosters but lucky me they ended up being hens.

    The coloring on your barred rock looks like a pullet.

    Any chance you could post better pictures that show a full side shot (including saddle area and the full tail) especially on the second bird?

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. Are you certain of their age? I would like to say Barred Rock pullets - they have nice , dark, clear markings but seems like the combs are pinker than should be at that age.
