    I'm new to the backyard chickens. We have a mixed flock, and we know the older ones are hens. I bought one buff and one Wyandotte. I'm thinking the buff (my daughter's fave) is a Roo, and I know that will break her heart, as we can't have Roos where we live. Here are some photos of Hillary(???). [​IMG][/IMG]

    I'll be in the barn!
    Nothing screaming roo, but any redness at that age should be monitored. As of now I'm leaning towards roo, but only time can tell for sure exactly.
