    Got eight chicks about 12 or 13 weeks ago. Some are starting to crow at sun rise. I am new here so I posted a pic on my page I call it home. This post is in referance to are they roosters or hens. Some say thethens will do in the absence of a rooster. I like they noise but real wanted eggers. please visit @ https://www.backyardchickens.com/web/viewblog.php?id=104110 Tell me what you think. My wife and I both are keeping fingers crossed.

    If you were to give us recent pics that showed the comb and wattles on each of them that would help us out. [​IMG]

    The last picture- the front two look like Roos- the back one look pullet.

    Are your two roos kinda doing a confrontational dance with each other? I have a roo SLW and a roo EEer and they fluff their feathers and do a staring contest.
