    I hate to break it to you... but They're all roo's! The female RIR would have a much smaller comb & tail feathers.. but if it makes you feel better, they sure are Purdy! [​IMG]

    Thanks...yes that does help, Lol. Now if anyone knows someone who would like to buy some Roo's ....Send them my way,lol. I have homes already for 2 of the RIR's, and we're keeping Red of course, that leaves 2 RIR Roo's and this new little guy 4 weeks old that we thought was a pullet, and still trying to figure out if he's a Partridge Plymouth Rock or a Rocky Rhode ,lol. I live 35 miles north of Houston Texas...if anyone in this area needs a Roo.....let me know!

    Quote:I don't think that's too much of an age difference to mix them. The roos are almost ready to mate.

    Should I start to worry about the 5 of them going after each other at this time? They were all raised together, but I definitely don't want them hurting each other. What do y'all think? Should I separate them? Before one of them crows?
