    so my babies are happy and healthy and they are currently 3 weeks old. here are the pics and if you have any suspicions about any of them being roos, plz tell me. the only one that i think could be a roo is my silver laced wyandotte but i hope not because if he is, we have to give him away

    I am definately no expert, but I say the Barred Rock and the speckled sussex are roo's. Can't wait to see what others say.

    well see the thing is that my grandpa came and said that only the SLW is a roo but i do trust him a lot cause he has had 30 years of experience. i also think that the speckled sussex isnt a roo because the breed usually has big combs so im pretty sure that the speckled sussex is a girl. she also acts like the rest of them which are girls an the SLW acts a little different sorta like its showing off for the girls

    sussex looks like a lil roo but the barred I would wait a lil bit before making the sex call on them. Alot of my females looked like that one, but most of my males were a lighter color to them.
    but i am not an expert either

    that brahma is the cutest lil chicky!! I want one!!

    omg i really dont want the sussex to be a roo because she is my fav out of all of em. Ive already named her Coco! she is soooo nice she comes up to me and just sits on my shoulder or hand and falls asleep. She is the sweetest little thing and i cant part with her

    I'm certainly not an expert (newbie myself), but I'd say that the sussex is definately a roo. I love the brahma!
