    A photo of a comb does not mean a young chick is a cockeral. You need to take full body photos from different angles. Even then it may not be possible to tell until they are older.

    How old are they? If they are under 6 weeks old... yeah, those are roos.

    I just looked up the dates, and I got them Feb 8th. So they're about 6 weeks old.
