    I have 2 Rhodebar chicks that are 3 weeks old today. I'm pretty sure I have one cockerel and one pullet but please confirm this for me so I know for sure lol. Here are Cleo and Rosco.

    This is my first time with Rhodebars and I'm already addicted to them. Between them and my welsummer, they are the first to greet me and jump out of the brooder to cuddle with me lol

    Yes you do have a cockerel and a pullet, the one with the obvious white on his head is your roo.

    Looks like a pair to me based on the chick colors, dark=female, light=male, according to a search I did, but not familiar with the breed.

    Thank you. I knew he was a roo for sure but Cleo was giving me second thoughts lately since she looks so much like him now lol.
