    We have had 3 sets of hatches this Spring - hatched 2 and bought 3 (ameracauna day olds). The 1st and 3rd set of chicks share a common grandma and dads are brothers we rehomed last year. This batch has one black feathered roo and these two red babies. They are 12 weeks old now. Any ideas on sex?

    All moms were RIR or red sex-linked mixed with a Heinz 57 banty roo.

    Really interesting birds. The red almost looks like a Red SL hen, but it's pure roo. I bet he's going to be a looker when he fully feathers!

    Do you think both reds are roos? Just curious about colours - same dad, all the hens that could be moms were red. The for sure roo brother is black with red mix... and has a dark red comb. Just hoping I have more than 2 girls out of 9 chicks hatched [​IMG]

    Both brown birds are roos. The white one I'm not sure about, were you asking about it also?

    Thanks... The white one is their mom (bio Aunt).
