Hello. New to BYC. I have 6 new chicks. I have thought from they day I got them that one of my BR was a rooster. I still think so but he is so dark and has black wash down front of legs. Here is a pic of him (on the left) and a pullet when I first got them. The other two are white orps.. Now they are about 7 weeks.. He's the closer one. One more pic of him I took today. He's my favorite and plan to keep him. I just wonder if he might be a she since the barring is mostly black and the legs have the black wash. I really hope its a rooster.. I had a buff Brahma rooster a year ago that turned mean and started attacking my kids. He was beautiful so it took me awhile to decide he had to go. Now I want to try again but probably handle him more. My Brahma was soooo big he really intimidated us for first time chicken owners. Now I understand I need to be the boss. I have nine hens now and hopefully this little guy (named him Stu).
