I think I may have a roo.....

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Of (4) Australorp chicks (2-weeks old), one of them stands out as different. The comb looks different than the other (3) and it makes the most noise when people are around. This one looks a little larger in size than the others as well. Really new into chickens, but the differences stacked up seem to point toward our having (3) hens and (1) roo. Any thoughts?

It is *possible* but at this age it could go either way.

Thanks, I knew it was a still very early to tell, just noticing the different behavior and wondering. I posted comb picks of the one we think is the roo as well as of one of the other 3 for comparison. I definitely appreciate the help and advise from all the members here. Looking forward to getting to know you better over the years.

 

Thanks, again, for your thoughts!

Thanks! We will keep photos updated. I need to post other pics of our babies when we get moved and settled into their new home.
