    I don't see anyone who looks roo-ish in those pictures - looks like a lovely bunch of ladies, a couple of whom are likely now laying or about to start!

    Thank you! I am an amateur and was curious about the front one's wattles look larger and she's red while the other three are pale/yellow still.

    They all look like pullets to me.
    They look like pullets to me. Here is a pic of my six week old Roo, note the more white bars then black that is a good indication of a Roo. [​IMG]

    OH OKAY!! I can definitely tell that's a roo!! Thank you so much! I was kind of hoping one was a roo. :( Everyone keeps telling me that there isn't a way to keep a rooster nice, is that true?
