    How old? I see nothing on those birds that screams ROO! but the age would help.

    If there's a roo, I would suspect Cypress only if s/he is young.

    #2 looks a little roo-ish because of size. Not sure because I can't see the face/comb.

    Need age and better pic of no 2. I think no 1 is probably a roo, based on those thick legs, but knowing age will help. No 3 and 4 are girls.
