    Can anyone tell if the bird on the left is a roo? I know the one on the right is a hen, she brooded chicks this past fall. I tried to get a good picture but he wouldn't work with me. The bird on the right has a nearly black comb and is pretty elaborate. The one in question has a tiny red bit of comb that's it. He hasn't acted like a roo toward her. My big rooster doesn't pay him any mind, no fighting. I don't know how old they are. I was told they are seabrites. Any info would be great. Would love to get some chicks if they are a pair. Thanks Magpie[​IMG]

    Looks like a hen, a sebright rooster gets a fairly large comb and wattles compared to the hens.
