    I got these two cuties about 3 weeks from a straight run. I'm pretty sure the one closest to the camera is a Roo. It's bigger on overall size and the comb is bigger and pinker, but doesn't seem to by feathering out as fast as the other. I think they are both Roos but I'm hoping the smaller of the two is a hen. Any thought??[​IMG]

    Both do appear to be male. Were they marked as a specific breed? I ask as they could be barred rock males or they could be male black sex links (if they were marked sex links, or black star, etc then they are definitely male as in those chicks male and female feather out entirely different colors with males being barred)
