    Hi everyone!
    Sorry, newbie here. Currently where I live there is an ordinance against Roos so I bought couple chicks from a local Farm. He told me that they were both Pullets but I am starting to wonder. The one that I think is a roo is younger and not from the same hatch but it looked like he had several hatches togeth of various ages. They were with RIR's BR's wyanottes when I picked them up.Could someone give me hand identifying before I go back to them? Thank you in advance!

    This is the one I think might be a Roo Approx. 11-14 weeks and its comb is bigger and redder than the other was at the same age.

    Here is both. The one in the back is about 16-17weeks and the on in the front is pictured above

    I'm thinking you do have a cockerel there, sorry.
