    My 7 new babies are growing fast and will be 4 weeks old tomorrow. I'm praying for all pullets (hahaha) but I think I detected maybe 2 Roo's so far. They spend most of the day out in the field with Mom and the others but I bribed them to come in to this covered kennel with bread for thier photo shoot:)

    Almost too big for piggy back rides!

    At four weeks old my Roos had definite red combs and their combs were double the size of the pullet. They also had red wattles starting to show but the pullet was still yellow wattles.

    Well my BA's comb isn't that big and he/she is four weeks. But it is turning red. I guess I'll have to see.
