    Hello, A friend bought 6 chicks at a store Easter weekend --I thought they were all to be hens --but don't think so! Some photos are of the same chicken, just different angle. Couldn't get all at once! 2 are HUGE, no one has crowed. I think I know who is a roo and who isn't, but just wanted some 2nd, 3rd and 4th opinions. I'm afraid I might have 50% roos in the bunch, but certainly two!
    If possible, I'll try and take better photos tomorrow. Thanks!

    I think #1, #2 and #4 photos are roosters for sure. The other two (maybe it's the same bird?) could be hens.
