    As far as I know, there's no way to tell when they're born, but our Roo was obviously a roo by the time he was four or five weeks old.

    I was able to tell when they were just a few days old, you can usualkly see the start of a comb on the roos and the pullits have almost a completely smooth beak, either way the other post is right you can def. tell by 4-5 weeks old.
