These first three pics are of Red! This one looks like a Roo to me.




This is Ethel. I'm not sure on this one!



This is Little Ricky.

And this is Miss Lucy...or is it? LOL

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!

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?
