    I think this is the roo - upright gait and wattle development.

    Now here is the hen, I desperately hope:

    No wattles, thinner legs, less upright posture. Not pecking at others. S/he has a long tail, but may be a phoenix? The roo is a cochin, silver laced. What say you all?

    I'd say pullet, but how old?

    None of them are standing out as being roos at this point, the first one does have rather chunky legs though but the comb still seems rather small and pale, at 5 weeks they are still a bit young to be 100% sure but at this stage they are looking good to be pullets [​IMG]
