    I am pretty sure Mr. Roo is a rooster...

    They are all about 6 weeks old(?) but I can really only have one rooster, and Mr. Roo is my favorite. The silkie is my daughter's favorite, though...

    Thanks, that's what I thought. Now, girls do have a small comb though, right? I have some cochns who have tiny combs(same age) I figured the roos were roos based on their behavior too...they seem...bossier, lol.

    OK, since you guys are so fantastic at being able to tell all things girls and boys (and I am hopelessly clueless) What do you think about these chicks? All are about 6 weeks or so except the last one who is about 3 weeks.
