So indeed time will tell with the youngest/smallest...but thus far nothing is screaming roo.

It appears as though we have one Roo in each breed: 

 

The Welsummer & Cuckoo roos.

 

The Cuckoo roo beside the runt.

 

The Welsummer & Cuckoo roos after a dance.

 

Better shot at the breast of the Welsummer roo. (Cuckoo roo in left)

 

The Cuckoo pullet runt.

 

 

Good call on the runt. It's a girl! ("Goes to show, you never can tell" ~Chuck Berry)  :celebrate
