    Well, pictures are hard to tell, so...
    1)Roosters stand really upright
    2)Are bigger
    3)Get crests and gobble faster and bigger
    4)Get HUGE spurs

    Hope I helped!!!!

    I have SL cochins and my 2 hens look like your front bird, and my roo's comb/wattles are identical to yours! Definitely a roo =)

    Thanks that's what we were thinking but weren't sure...didn't really want a roo because we wanted them for the eggs...but I'm told as long as I check for eggs daily then it's ok...
