    I was just wondering if this is a roo or not. He/She is about 6 weeks old. Here are pictures...

    He/She is a Production red. I noticed today while they were exploring outside that there is a little bit of black feathers he/she has coming in. Does that mean rooster? He/she is REALLY mean. And whenever we try to pick he/she up he/she scratches us. He/She's comb is bigger then all the others. Please lemme know what you think. Thanks.

    he/she favors my red girls which are the same age im just guessing but i'm going to say roo just because the comb is red and the waddles are red and he's not a feathered out as my girls are

    Yep, I say roo. Look at the legs on him. He's sturdy. [​IMG] I'm sorry. I feel your pain.

    Yep, I'd say rooster.
    My rooster was as mean as could be at that age, he would make it a point to come from wherever he was to get me (attack me) everyday when he heard my truck pull into the driveway.
    He mellowed with age and I couldn't imagine not having him to take care of the girls.
    Good luck with it

    Really? I got it from the pullet bin at TSC along with 5 others. If he turns out to be a roo, I will have to get rid of him. I cant really have a roo where I live. My neighbors wouldnt really appriciate having a rooster going cocka doodle doo at 5:30 in the morning.

    He looks like a boy to me too. I got an accidental silkie rooster and I love him. Hope it all works out.
