    Well 2 and 4 are almost 100% roo but number 3 is iffy. First one is a girly I do believe.

    My girls did not get their combs until much much later and they had that ridgeline little thing for awhile.

    Spurs you will not see for a long time they are like a sharp round hard protruding toenail that can get several inches in length. They protruse from the back of the leg above the foot. The spurs are used to puncture and rip by the rooster when fighting a predator or another roo. You will know they are roos by their crowing long long before they get spurs.
