    Hi, I have 2 chicks that are confusing me, they are now 12 weeks old, and I still can't tell who is a hen and who is a roo. If any one has any idea please post it!javascript:insert_text('[​IMG]',%20''); Also any guesses on what breed(s) the white chicken is he/she is a barnyard mix.

    This is Reeses.(Red star and EE mix)

    I think the first is a roo, not sure on the white one but would guess pullet.

    Just my opinion. [​IMG]

    #1 roo pointed saddle and hackle feathers
    #2 pullet rounded saddle and hackle feathers

    The white one looks like my polish EE cross chickens except mine are black.

    I'd say first one a definite roo.

    second one looks rooish to me too.

    they both have 'that look'

    The first one is definately a roo.

    The second, I'm leaning towards roo as well.

    Okay, so I think the vote is one roo, and one hen.
