    :rolleyes:
    I love my little Olive Egger just worried he is a roo. My neighbors (even though far away are not fans of roo sounds. I already think he is a roo based on his fighsty attitude, comb and upright stance? Maybe I'm wrong?

    They are both VERY young to sex at 2.5 weeks of age but....
    To me, Neather is screaming obvious cockerel ATM.

    Good Luck :frow

    He is starting to stump me as he/she has a pullet body and a rooish head. This is some chick at 9 weeks.

    Ok, it's hard to tell from these pics, but I think I see dark blue coming in on the wings which would mean cockerel. At nine weeks though it does look pullet-ish other than that. :/
