    Hello Everyone!! [​IMG]

    I have a very strong feeling that one of my BR pullets is going to crow at me one of these days... what do you think?? All of these chickens are 6.5 weeks old.

    We think the one on the left is a little boy...

    And the duckies you can see in the background are 'Squeak' and 'Ming-Ming'... my kids pets. One is a drake and one is a hen... we are really hoping nature will take its course and we'll get babies... although these guys have been brooded with my chickens from day one and think they ARE chickens [​IMG] We think they are Pekin ducks... any thoughts on their breed??

    Your BR is a boy for sure. And the ducks are Pekins.

    Hey, if you like roos so much, I'm sure I've got an extra 15-20 running around here that need new homes [​IMG]

    And your ducks are pekins, you'll most likely have to incubate their eggs. I've had pekin ducks go broody, but they don't ever finish.

    I kind of think that both the barred rocks are boys (in the first pic). The ducks are pekins [​IMG]

    I agree, that both could be boys. The one on the right has a much redder and more developed comb than my BRs at 7 weeks.
