    Ok, so I hatched 22 babies on May 24...whohoo!!! In these pics they are right at 8 weeks old. Now the hard part, whos a roo that's gotta go? I know several of my white ones are roos, no question. It's pretty obvious, but some I'm not sure of. They are all barnyard mix, who knows! I got them from a farmer.

    5,6,8,9, and 12.....look like pullets,
    2, 7, and 14 look like roos,
    but you can't always go just by the comb.

    If we're going by comb size (Since that's all we can see) then 1-4, 6, 10, 11, 13 & 14 are roo's and the rest are pullets!!

    1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 10, 11, 14 are definate Roos. There are a few of the others that could be. Mainly the ones with other types of combs. The main suspects are 5, 9, and 13.

    1, 2, 6, 7, 10, 13, 14 roos.
    I am looking at combs, wattles and color.
    You have at least a couple of EEs there.
