    Wow. I started to say that 3 weeks old is way too young to say for sure but, yes, that second pic sure does look like a roo doesn't it? The way "he" stands, the bigger comb and the thicker legs all look pretty roo already! I would still wait a whole lot longer to see for sure. I'm usually in denial 'til I see 'em crowing.

    Quote:He is the reason that I think the others are pullets. I have known he was a roo since day 3 his entire demenor was just Rooish! Hopefully the rest aren't just late bloomers!
