    I got these 2 a week ago today from TSC. I think the chick in the first pic might be a roo the mark on his head is much larger it is an inverted v. The chick in the front in the second pic has a smaller mark on it's head and darker legs. I have 4 more, If I am guessing right I think I have 2 roo's and 4 pullets. I need your opinions
    Thanks

    I don't have any good pics of my BRs last year at that age, but here is probably a week or two older than yours. You can tell which one was the roo real easy.

    .....and just in case you can't its the lighter one in the top right.
