    These are both St. Patricks day babes I picked up at TSC. I'm worried that one is a roo. I'm hoping she is just maturing quickly. What do you think?

    The one of the left looks like one of mine...I'm a newbie so don't take my word for it but the one on the left looks a whole lot like my "Einstein" that I "felt" was a roo at 2wks old. He's (if he is indeed a he) now 2 months old...

    Good luck finding out. I've heard it said on this very site, "One never knows...until he crows"....
