    Not sure they acted like two roos today when I took them outside for some yard time... But I am inexperienced and this is my first roo and first time with Sebrights... I really just dont know, I just hope I dont have a slow growing roo. But if I do no big deal. Its just a reason two get two more hens. I hope I posted pics correctly. First two are my Roo and second two are my hen I think.

    My guess is that they are both roos.

    The first for sure is a roo. It is all comb. The second, hmmm, looks like a pullet to me based on color only. How old are they?

    I would guess they are a pair, but the second one could be a slow maturing roo. First one is definitely a boy with those wattles.

    I definately think I have one roo and one hen... The roo is definately becoming more developed and the hen?? is still the same on her comb.. Yea Now all I need is a Silver Sebright Pair. Oh and my roo gave his first crow last night it was pretty funny. I will try to get on video becuase he thinks he a big man now. I wont tell him his waddles havent dropped yet.
