    Is this a roo? I ordered an Australorp pullet, however.....it looks like a roo. Why do I have so many roos? [​IMG]

    I believe you have a roo, here is a shot of mine at about the same age. Also some BR roos..
    Don't worry, my first time raising chicks, all 9 were to be pullets, all 9 were roos....sold them, gave away and started all over! Now I have about 14 pullets...and 3 roos!

    I think you have a roo.

    I feel your frustration. Here is a picture of my "guaranteed" BA pullet....."Bubba".....he will be 5 weeks on Wednesday.
