    I got what was suppose to be 7 hens. I am thinking that 2 are Roo's. What does everyone think? They are white leghorn.

    This one I am thinking is a Roo. If so his name will be Carl[​IMG]
    This one I am not sure she has a bigger comb but its not as red. If this is a hen her name will be Claire.

    Im thinking definite roo for the top...
    As for #2, probably roo too because of the redness, but maybe others have opinions.

    Both are cockerels. One is just maturing a bit faster than the other.

    ok thank you. I am sure the rest are hens. Will I have a problem with having 2 roosters and 5 hens? I was told they were all hens when they were sexed at 3 days of age. The rooster we had growing up was mean as hell.

    x2 I would advise getting rid of one of them, you need at least a 10 hens to have 2 roosters or it will be hard on your hens and the roosters will most likely fight.

    It has turned out that they are both cockerels.
