    How old are they? Look all all roos to me if they just still growing out chicks.

    The RIRs looks exactly like my almost 6 week old. I have been informed that he is most likely a roo:(. Good luck with the white one! I have a mystery white bird myself.

    Looks exactly like my 6 week old! I think mines a roo too. Mine is also getting black in his/her tail feathers.

    I think the one in the middle might be a girl. Comb is smaller, less defined, and palish. Other 2 I think are boys [​IMG]

    Even though the second one doesn't have quite as much red in the comb and wattles, I think it is a roo, as are the other two. My basis for that is my two RIRs are 7wks and don't have any wattles yet and no red in their combs. My opinion is by no means an expert one though.

    I have had the same experience with my RIR's that are 8 weeks old. Their combs have not even turned red yet!
