    Can anyone confirm that these are all roosters?? It is time to thin out my chickens but I am so confused as to which ones are roos and hens. They haven't started laying yet but should start soon so I want to get the roosters out. I am hoping these are roos because of the tails, the combs are different and that is what is confusing to me. (sorry about the bad quality of pics)[​IMG]

    I'd say they are all roosters the only one I can't really tell for sure is the barred one because he kinda evaded the pics, but you got a nice bunch of roosters there. [​IMG]

  3. They all look like roosters to me. [​IMG] The only one that I'm not 100% sure on is the barred one, but it's tail has me leaning towards rooster.

    Not sure about the barred one, pic isn't very clear but the rest are boys.have a look at the barred ones rump feathers, if they are pointy then its a boy. Soft and rounded its a girl. However I think it's a boy

    Does this photo help?
     
  6. I'm pretty sure that it's a rooster, the tail seems too pointed to be a hen.
