    Just shy of 5 weeks! I have 8 chickens. My guess these three are Roos. Thoughts?[​IMG]

    The 1st and last are defiantly roos, The one in the middle looks like a roo, but I can't see his face all that well. I am learning so others might have a better idea on the middle chick!

    I'd agree that the first and last are both cockerels. The middle one might be a pullet. Comb appears less developed and a tad more pale. I also can't see wattles on that one. Hard to say for me with the middle one though.

    Now y'all making me feel bad about being wishy-washy about the cutie in the middle [​IMG] Probably because I was so suspicious of a couple of my own EE girls who matured faster.

    Thank you all!! This one is an amercauna (spelling) mix. It's WAY bigger then my other 5 week olds and I thought for sure a roo but now I'm leaning towards pullet. Thoughts?[​IMG]
