    We have 6 - 4 month old birds. I can't figure out if these two are Roos or hens. They have smaller combs than the 2 Roos, but their feathers are the same colour. Help please!

    Those two both look like roosters to me with the draping saddle feathers and patchwork colors.

    they have pea combs, and for pea combs their combs are big

    The other 2 roosters have full sized combs. So we know they are roosters based on their feathers. Shoot, that means 4 roosters and 2 hens out of 6 eggs. :p

    Definitely roosters. They have small combs because they are pea combed birds.
     
  9. Rooster. Pretty guy! He has a pea comb, but as you see his comb is a dark red, therefore you have a rooster.
