    These little guys/gals are about 4 weeks old & are hatchery chicks. Please tell me if you think they are hens or roos.

    Chick #1 - buff. I really thought this was a hen until a few days ago, now I'm thinking roo.

    Chick #2 - Partridge - I think roo

    Chick #3 - Black - It has a large comb but no red in it, I'm a little on the fence about this one.

    The small animal auction in my area is next weekend. The little roos will have to go - I've already got enough boys. I was hoping for at least 3 hens.
