    We've had these chicks for almost 4 weeks, but I don't know their hatch dates so they are probably older than that. I'm pretty sure some are older than others. Let me know if I should post more pics.

    Thanks in advance!

    Chick #1 - probably the oldest, most feathered out, gender and breed?

    Thanks for your responses!

    I was hoping #1 wouldn't be a roo. He is so sweet, and I love the way he gives me stink eye. Maybe he'll be a really quiet roo so we can keep him. Wishful thinking? Probably.

    #1 is most definiately a rooster. I don't think he is Rhode Island Red tough. There are patterned feathers on his back. I have some hens that look quite a bit like him, they are from a 1/2 New Hampshire 1/2 Rhode Island Red rooster over Welsummmer hens.
