    I think I found my first roo! And they're only 3 weeks old. I didn't expect to see any changes already! He's a blue wyandotte and by the way he's been acting, I felt like he was a roo. Now I think it's a good chance he is one. Anyone agree?

    And to compare, these are my two other Wyandotte babies

    I feel like 3 weeks is too early to tell, but those red waddles and beggining or a comb are hard to ignore. Not to mention he's super adventurous and likes heights.

    Oh, you called it! The wattles. It's all in the wattles. Oh, and the attitude, which you can see and we can't.

    He looks like he is going to be so amazingly beautiful!! Oh, wow. I am so jealous. (Happy for you, but jealous ... you know ... in a friendly way.)

    I think he's gunna be really pretty too. He's got some dark lacing on the edge of his feathers that the other two don't have quite as much. I won't be able to keep him, so my friend and her kids who show in 4H will be lucky! Maybe he'll be a winner too :)
