    Hi all, Ok here's a couple pics of my BO's I think one is a Roo & maybe there might be another. They're the 2 largest & a little bit darker. The 1 has his comb already sturning color & is pink like color right now. They're 4 weeks old now.

    This is the group pic

    The one looking toward the camera with the pink comb I think might be the roo here he is close up

    now the one on the right I'm not sure about & I *think this is that same bird in another pic

    Those 2 were the darker of the group & the guy with the pink comb is notably bigger. That 2nd one is the next larger one with a slightly larger comb than the rest but I just don't know.

    I know that the others have their head kind of hidden but it's so hard to get a good pic of them & getting individual pics is almost impossible because I'm thinking I'm taking a pic of the same one over & over as they all mix in together. LOL Does anyone have any tips on how to keep them marked? I imagine after a while their personalities will help separate them but it's tough keeping them straight....

    The one you pointed out is probably a rooster, but still early to tell for sure.

    He's really very cute the one with pink & when it comes to his roo responsibilities he is as serious as a heart attack... making sure he's the one up front at whatever is coming in the cage or at them. LOL They are all too cute really & they LOVE the camera & to peck at the lens.... & the string handing down is just asking to be pecked at! I think these kids need some toys huh?
