    can anyone help me? im afraid my baby rocky might be a roo.. i cant have roo's. roo's and hens look the same in some breeds as they grow up. how can i tell when it's a pullet of a roo??

    and what breed do you think my little one is? i know the other one is a Austrulorps Pullet for sure ( feed store sexes them). but the other is bought from a local.

    Looks like a golden laced Wyandotte, but with a single comb.

    I would like to point out that if it were Black Sex-link rooster, then it would be Barred, not brown like a hen. I have no idea what it is, but it looks to be a cockerel of some sort. Definitely wait and see, I'm not 100% sure.

    Quote:Black Sex-link hens hatch out all black, but feather out to be black with reddish brown feathers on their breast area.
