    These are my chics I rescued , thought they were roos but they aren't feathering like one. They have no saddle feathers.I got them around mid April.
    Their body shape isn't like a roo either,I think.
    When they were around two months old they started getting red combs but they haven't got any bigger.
    So what yall think ???

    They both look like hens to me.

    Your chicks look wonderful. I am so glad you kept us updated on them. I remembered when you first got them. I am not that knowlegable on birds yet but they look like Australorps to me. They are good birds to. They remind me alot of the buffs in temperment. What are your birds names?
