    I'm pretty sure this guy is a roo, but he doesn't look as rooish (is that a word?) as the other 3. I don't want to give him to someone and have them come back with the news that he is a hen, so I just want to double check.

    Oh, I forgot I can't post images yet. Here are the urls to some photos on flickr:

    Here are two of the ones I know are roos if anyone is interested in looking at them:
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/craftyblogger/5939551367/in/photostream/ - This one is gorgeous and I hope I can find him a home as a flock guardian.
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/craftyblogger/5940108744/in/photostream/ - Don't tell him he isn't a RIR hen. You'll break his little heart. He thinks he is one of the girls.

    I thought he was. I only ended up with two EE hens. I do not have good luck with straight run chicks! Now to find four more homes for pretty roosters...
