    So we've had some not so great luck with these chicks.... started with a dozen fertile eggs, from which only one hatched, purchased another 7 day olds to put in with it and as of this week, we are down to 4 :(
    Really hoping we at least have a girlie majority!

    Neil Patrick Harris (I thought he was a Barnevelder but ???)

    Rhonda could be a roo... jury is still out.

    Niel Patrick Harris looks like a roo, but that's kindof a girly name isn't it?

    Thanks for the opinion Mahonri!
    Those are the two I've suspected were roos for a few weeks now.
    Rhonda is A LOT larger than Peaches, which noticeably thicker legs.
    Haha I named him Neil Patrick Harris because he's a Barney-velder :p I've suspected roo since he was 2 weeks old.
