    1 of my 5 chicks has a huge red comb, and large waddles already. They're 3 weeks 3 days old. Could this be a roo?

    What a cutie! Compared to the others, are his legs thicker and feet larger? How about his wing feathers - a little shorter than the others? How about his personality - a bit more active and aggressive?

    Put all those together with wattles and comb precociousness and you just may have a junior roo.
