    The comb on #1 is really light. the comb on the second one is very dark. I was thinking the first one was a pullet & the second a roo? This is part of the fun of being new to raising chickens!!!!

    Quote:In that case.... I am not sure [​IMG] . are the legs really thick???



    Quote:Erm.... not sure about that. I am a new chicken owner too, but i really want all pullets. though I am almost 100% sure i have a PR cockerel.

    i might have to fight to keep him. But if my favorite is also a roo..... Awwww.... It makes me so sad thinking about their futures... [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Yes, they are both the same age. Ihave two that look like # 1 [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] That is really a bummer, because I'm pretty sure that at least 1 of my buff orpingtons is a roo also.
