    Okay. so some of these are definately roosters. Here are a few I think are roos. There is some variation in colors because some were taken outside and some inside, but I was going mostly by comb and wattle size. Any input would be appreciated. The ones i marked as roos combs and wattles have grown a lot in the last week. Also, I did'nt take one pic of each so their may be duplicates. Thanks for any input.

    There were a few that I thought were hens that I had a hard time getting pics of, also they seemed to want to be outside in the run more....

    One last thing, are they too young to have scraps of vegetables and things...... and does putting a band around their leg to mark them hurt them at all?

    Yeah I have posted them before, I was just holding out hope that I had a few hens in the bunch, I just hate this game of wait and see.

    I don't know, they look like roos to me. My girls at 9 weeks didn't have wattles at all. I really really hope I'm wrong though. [​IMG]
