    Oh my, they are growing so fast! My 6 chicks are a week old now and three of them are showing tail feathers and their wing feathers are longer than the other three. Maybe a sign of things to come? I'm guessing that those three just might be roos. They all are looking healthy and they are eating really good.

    The best way to tell is the combs. The roo combs will be slightly larger than the hens.

    I would love to see pics! See if any of mine look like yours. My first batch are getting big and are too funny. I can just sit and watch em for hours.............

    Here's one of our chicks, I took this photo yesterday. I would've posted a pic sooner but I forgot how to do it so I had to go back and find out!
