    After a day of squabbling, they'll always be sat together at the end of the day (':

    Are they roosters yet? They're 14 weeks old, so are they still just roos? I thought 'roo' meant young male chicken like 'pullet' means young female chicken, or have I got this messed up, haha.

    These pictures are REALLY good!

    Roo is just short for rooster. A cockerall is a male chicken under a year old.


    I really love these pics!

    If they are roos (cockerels) you have a very good chance of them being okay if they were raised together. At 14 weeks, it's hard to tell if they will get along, but it looks like it.

    I hope so! The white one is the only one who is crowing so far, I hope it stays that way as well. I may have to rehome (somehow) the white one if it upsets the neighbors, so hopefully if he goes the cuckoo roo wont start to crow! [​IMG]
