    Hi all,
    Please take a look at the white one. I don't know the breed. It has green legs.Easter egger or white jersey giant? I thought it was a roo but now thinking maybe a hen?? I'm fairly certain that the black one is a roo. Black Australorp? They are around 6 weeks old or so.Thanks!!

    Black one definitely a male. I would also guess the white one (who is either a white jersey giant like you said, or some sort of EE cross) is a male, because of the reddening of his face at only 6 weeks old.

    The black one is a roo, and the white one is a pullet, NOT a roo.:)

    Yay!!! I am hoping the black one is the only roo out of the 12 babies that I have! I'm nervous about having roosters for some reason. [​IMG]

    X4 rooster. The red coming in on the shoulders, thick legs and upright stance makes me guess boy
