    Hi. This one came as our "Free Exotic" with a McMurrays order, and though we asked for all females we know that a roo sneaks through and that often the bonus chicks are roos. I also know that these Barred PR birds can be mistaken pretty easily to so I'm asking the experts out there. Pullet or Roo? Helena or chicken soup? Actually not really sure what we'll do if it's a roo, but really wanted all hens. Thanks for the input.

    Then the name is being changed to "chicken soup" for the last few weeks of his life.
    Thanks.
