    I think these two were hatched May 14, and I'm hoping they aren't both roos! The smaller one, lower picture - it's name is Dot but it doesn't answer to it - I'm pretty sure is a roo, its comb and wattles are big and red, and I've caught it trying to crow several times. The bigger one, 1st picture - Margo, also doesn't answer - has a fairly big comb as well, but it isn't red, and it has much more of a tail. Sorry my pictures aren't fabulous, they don't care for cameras. Thanks for your help!!!

    Are they Sussex? Their combs seem much redder and larger than mine that are a few weeks older than yours. I am no expert at this, but based on what I've got, I'd say they are both Roos. I have one Barred Rock Roo myself, and I will be finding him a good home in the near future.[​IMG]

    No kidding! I had more than one dream of all six of them being roos! My husband said if that was the case we'd call them The Dirty Half Dozen. I'll hang on to them both for a while and see how their personalities develop. Thanks again.​
