    Hard to tell, not knowing how old it is, or what breed. Also a closer pic of the head would be helpful. I think it is a roo, but I'm not sure.

    Banty roos that are raised together CAN get along...but there will definitely be a dominant roo. The more room you have for them to spread out, the better. They will establish their own territory. I still think one is better though, because they WILL fight once the hormones kick in and it is never fun to see them fighting and getting hurt.

    I don't see any red yet, so I'd say both pullets.

    I have to disagree...I am saying pullet. My roos at 4 weeks had a lot more red to their combs and you could see their red wattles already.
