    All are from MPC. None are showing any particular roo behavior, though Queen is the only docile one we can easily pick up and pet. General Tso I had on here before and he was identified as a roo.

    Here is General Tso. He has these small streamer like feathers coming out of his narrow head, it is hard to see in this photo:

    Here is General Not Tso. Tso & Not Tso are very similar so it is often hard for us to tell the difference without comparing:

    Maddy our smaller silkie. She has been about half the size of the others since day 1. She is the silkie behind General Tso in the first photo:

    Here is Queen. Here head is a big round pouf unlike the narrow heads of the other three:

    And for fun Miss Peggy decided to get in on the photos [​IMG]

    Not Tso looks like a cockerel. Do you have a pic of its comb?
    Maddy is a pullet.
    Queen is a pullet, and a pretty decent nb for a hatchery bird.

    I do not have a photo of Not Tso's comb but it is similar to Tso's, just a tiny bit smaller.

    What is a nb?
