    I posted a link a week or so ago with pics of on of my chicks that we thing is a roo... I dont think there is any denying it!! I will be very very surprised it this is not a roo! [​IMG] Editing to add she/he is 4 1/2 weeks old. the rest of my chicks still have no crowns or very little.

    It looks exactly like my 5 week old amberlinks, which I am still not sold are roos- Huge combs but I think its a breed thing as the hatchery that supplies our tsc with amberlinks only seels pullets...only time will tell

    Quote:Mine are Amberlinks too!!! 4 1/2 weeks, but the crown and wattles are more red than the rest. What Hatchery did yours come from? Mine were from Mount Healthy. Do any of yours have the brown on the wings yet? I just saw one today that does, she is going to be very very pretty!

    Quote:Mine are all Amberlinks, and no they dont.I can barely see anything on the rest..... This chicken is is also very brave, it is the first one to run to my hand. I had another chick that was separated from the rest while her leg was healing and when she went back in the he/she ran right up chest out to her. Seems to be running the show! [​IMG]
