OK, I decided that I just had to have two more BRs in the flock, so I got a couple from a family member. I believe these may be about 5 weeks old now (he couldn't remember exactly when they hatched). Do I have pullets, roos, or one of each? Color seems to be about the same to me (I'm thinking males are bit lighter due to more "barring", but could be wrong and it may be too early to tell). Both still have some "fuzz" on the back of their necks still, one more than the other. I'm leanng toward thinking the one with the most fuzz on its neck (on the right in these photos) is a roo. What do you thing BYC'ers?
