    OF THE 3 ONE HAS A REDDER COMB AND IS OVERALL LIGHTER IN COLOR-JUST CURIOUS IF THAT IS AN INDICATOR AT THIS EARLY OF AN AGE.

    Oh yeah! Definite boy! (Hopefully that's what you wanted.)
    It's startling to see a great big red comb on a 2-wk old- I'm so used to working with Polish, who have hardly any combs 'til they're all grown up.[​IMG]

    If yours is a boy I hope he is as nice as my Lacey (named that because he was supposed to be a she.)

    Quote:How old are you kids and are they showing that they are scared? Just curious for future FYI. Don't have any poultry roos that chase anything but other roos. The game are fearless though and attack any thing that shows fear.

    I Have A 4yo And 1yo.i Have Had 4 Different Roosters(pure-leghern And Brown Egg Mixed)that We Raised From Babies.they Were All Fine Till They Started Fighting Over Who Was In Charge.my Son Is Not Scared Of Them.he Really Likes The Chickens.he Would Be Out Playing In The Sand Box And The Roosters Would Come Up And Start Flogging.they Would Come Up To Me In The Garden When I Was Bent Over Picking Veggies And That Puts Me At Eye Level.my Son Learned To Pick Up A Stick And Carry It With Him.(just For The Roosters).he Loves Sitting With And Holding The Hens.i Wouldn't Even Mine If The Roosters Ran Away From Us But Not At Us.i Like The Protection They Gave The Hens.i Will Keep Looking For The Right One.
