    A friend and I hatched out some of her eggs and my two favorites look like they could be roos. They are 6 weeks and because they are mix I am not sure. First 1 is a BR mix, 2nd I'm not sure at first thought she was a RSL but her comb leads me to believe I am wrong. I am new to having my own chickens and I am hoping I am wrong. Any thoughts?

    At 6 weeks, I would say both are cockerels, too much comb and wattles not to be. And with RSL, single comb is what they usually have. My GSL has a single. Just depends on what the parents genetic make up is.
