    3 weeks old. Of the three that were not sexed, one seems to be heavier than the others..... Does that usually coincide with Roo?

    depends on HOW MUCH heavier... could just be a bigger/fatter hen

    It just feels noticeably heavier.... Size wise I don't think there is much difference, just a weight difference. Enough that I had already picked up 4-5 and when I picked up this one, I noticed immediately.
