    Around 7 weeks. Roos or hens? This waiting is so hard.

    Thanks for your help.

    Be patient, and use a real camera, not a phone camera. Phone cameras often don't capture details like feather shape.

    Here's some more. Olive Oil the larger one to me seems like a roo. The comb is pink not quite as red as it looks from picking her up.

    Hope these work.

    Both cockerels. The larger one is about two weeks older than the other.

    Is there any good way to get young hens? I hate to buy a bunch more Roos again.

    Buy/order vent sexed chicks, or purchase birds that are over 6 weeks old, and know what to look for in terms of comb and plumage coloring. What state/region are you located?
