    I hope these phot's are okey, these chickens do not like having their picture taken. Can anyone tell me if any are roos if so which ones.

    The first 2 the one on the right has had feathers plucked out not sure if it is from the other rooster we have or the geese. It is hard to get to close as the geese are very protective of all the chickens.

    In the top picture, one of the left is definate roo, middle is probably a roo and the one facing camera on the right looks like a girl.

    On the second picture: girl on the left, boy on the right. check out the saddle feathers.

    Are they the same age? If not, and the one with rounded saddle feathers is older, I agree with the rest.

    How old are they? If they are all the same age, I'm wondering if the possible female is a 3rd male that is just slow to get his pointed saddle and hackle feathers - what seems suspicious is that the combs and wattles of all 3 are identical in size -- the two males should have larger combs and wattles than the female if they are all the same age.

    Thank You everyone for your help.
    Yes they are all the same age the middle one it the first pic is the one that has had it feathers plucked at the back, unsure why this is though.
    Time to go buy more hens now [​IMG]
