    This chick has me really guessing. About 6 weeks old. I culled the other roo chicks and left this one. It just didn't show the redness and size of comb like the others. This chick is really bigger than the others. As a younger chick it had a irregular head spot. I'm just not sure if its a Roo. Its overall color is very dark. [​IMG] What do you guys think????

    it still may be a little early, 5 of my "hens" turned into roosters recently! [​IMG]

    do you have a full body side shot? so we can see tail, feathers, etc? I only ask because the face is so red, mine still aren't that red and they are 4 months..

    eta-could be because we are so cold here though, I will say the dark feathers and small comb look very much like a pullet
