OK first off, can I say again how much I LOVE this site??? That said, my husband who doesn't know any more about chicks than I do (but we're learning quickly) seems to think that this chick is a Roo. We released them into their half completed coop for some exercise and he/she was very hmmm....alpha with the others. You can't see it in the pic, but usually her/his tail feathers stick up much more. I think it's just a big hen, but what do I know? Also, this an EE right? Another question: The coop should be finished in another week or so. is it getting too crowded in here? I could set up another box if need be. There are 20 of them total. They have been such a joy and are getting bigger and stronger everyday. Thanks again for all your great advice!
