    I've got one out of my order of 12 I think is going to be a boy. Let me know what you think. His comb isn't redder/bigger but his feathers are pointier and prettier and his tail is much smaller then the others. Also, his feathers came in different. They are all RIR except 1 partridge rock. All turned 4 weeks Fri. I put some pictures of the others for comparison. Thanks for the help.

    I guess you have to be smarter than your average bear. [​IMG] I looked at all the pictures and I can't tell on any of them.

    I don't know about the chick in the last pic, but I'm fairly certain the one in the first pic is a roo.

    I agree you have a Roo there. (just guessing of course- going by my own experience)- his tail feathers are a dead give-away. Also the (what I call) "scruffy feathering" always seemed to happen to my roos for feather development.
    As for the Partridge, Altho the legs seem thick...I'd still have to say girl. Comparing to my 8 week old Partirdge Roo...she has longer tail-feathers than he has at 8 weeks and she seems to have nice feathering.

    I think the boys pay in the begining on development....and then they turn out to be sooo beautiful! It is ashame...... I get blessed with to many of them and can't keep them all, and they are always the nicest looking ones too!!! [​IMG]

    anywho- Nice looking cuties!

    I completely agree that it's a roo. The short tail feather jump right out. He sure is handsom though.

    I hope you guys are right because I only have 2 and they look a lot like Henrietta. Well they have tails and they are 5 wks old.
