    I originally thought I had 2 roos, but now I'm wondering if one of them might be a pullet (wishful thinking? lol). Though they both feathered out very slowly, if that matters... ABout 6 1/2 weeks here.

    #1: (roo?)

    The second one is definitely a girl. That is exactly how my girls looked at that age. I am not sure on that first one. It does look rooish, but too could be a girl too. [​IMG]
