    I'm concerned that 4 of my birds may be roosters - can somebody help me clear this up? Thanks! Gosh, I hope I'm wrong about this, I already know for sure I have a Dominique rooster. All 17 of my birds are supposed to be girls!

    Thank you, Now, please tell me how you knew that! I should be better at this by now, maybe I just don't know what to look for.

    I forgot the SLP is a roo too. You can tell by the pointed saddle feathers.

    Quote:Oh yeah. The only ones who aren't roos are the buff orpington sitting to the left in the first pick, and the barred rock in the background in the first pic.
