    I think I have 1 roo in my flock. They are all about 8 weeks or so. I'm kind of disappointed because the one I suspect to be a roo is my favorite and we are not allowed to have them in the city limits. Please tell me I'm wrong!

    My thoughts are:
    Pics 1 and 2. Pullet
    Pics 3 and 4. Pullet
    Pic 5 Pullet
    Pic 6 and 7 Roo??? S/he has started to get a pink comb and reddish waddles.
    Pic 8 and 9 pullet

    An easy way to tell is to look at the neck feathers. rounded feathers= girls and pointed feathers=boys

    They all look like pullets to me too. Maybe your "roo" is just developing faster. What breed are they?

    Quote:I hope so! I was worried because she is the only one with any waddles or pink/red. She is the one of the biggest but was one of the smallest chicks when we first got them at about 3 weeks old. I'm pretty sure they are just barnyard mutts.

    Yea you never know with mutt chickens. Like one poster mentioned earlier look at your hackle feathers and your saddle feathers. If they're pointed you've got a boy.
