    It was picture day, lol. These are the two suspected roos out of the 11 hens I ordered from Ideal. Before I go giving them away, I just want to know "for sure" that they are indeed roos.

    These are all 7/11 hatch dates, so they are all about 6 weeks old.
    Thanks-

    Wow, at 6 weeks I'd have to say roo. Till I read it I was thinking maybe girls.. if they were 16 weeks old!

    Big wattles for 6 week olds.
    I know where I'd bet my money, but you never know, Ive bet on a 50-1 horse and won. I think that may be a good comparison here.. and about your odds, if your looking for pullets [​IMG]

    Thanks a bunch.

    Looks like I'll be looking to rehome a couple Silver-Laced Wyandotte roos in a month or so. [​IMG]
