    Cute buggers either way. I really can't tell. I would think it may be a little pinker if it was a roo. I have some rir's with a little larger comb, a little pink and I'm quite sure they are pullets. Can you maybe get a profile pic?

    I have 3 BO that are 6 weeks old and one of them is a roo. It started growing this huge very red comb at about 2 weeks. [​IMG]

    Those are some very lovely GIRLS you have there [​IMG]
    Enjoy all the eggs you will get soon enough.

    The good news, is lots of folks have extra roos, even if your not one of them! you'll find them a boy no problem when your ready.

    I can't wait to start getting eggs... This is my first time with chicks and everyone thinks I am nuts ... I go out and "Play" with my ladies and they climb all over me and ride around on my shoulder. and cluster at my feet until I play with them lol...
    They are my babies and I love em I am just sorry I didn't do it sooner lol...
