    I have 4 chicks that I got from a kindergarten class, born April 21st. I know one of the white ones is definitely a roo. The other 3 I am confused. The buff? The easter egger or americana and the last white one I have no idea. Since they were all hatched the same day. The white one that is a roo has a much bigger comb and crows. So I am thinking the other white one is a hen? Any help, I can't have roos in my neighborhood.

    All are roosters except the bird to the far left in the first photo.

    Thank you, can you tell me what you see in the lone white one that tells you its a roo? In comparing it to the other white one its comb is much smaller and it hasn't tried to crow yet. Here's another pic.[​IMG]

    He has hackle and saddle feathers coming in - only cockerels get those :) Plus his comb and wattles are much larger than a pullet's would be at that age.

    I tried to do that, but I couldn't find where you type the text. The only way I could post is if I started one myself, maybe it's my phone. IDK
