    Sorry, still a newbie - have an idea of a few but still not sure. One of them is trying to crow but he's being discreet, we can't tell which one.

    We have 13 and I'm guessing half are roos (my luck) - fingers crossed I am wrong - hubby says we can't keep that many roos. =o(

    I am "GUESSING" that these are pullets.........

    Pip
    Miss Ray Ray
    Miley
    Veronica

    But, I can't say for sure, especially since I don't have any of these breeds. I hope they are mostly pullets for you [​IMG]

    I'm no expert, but here's my opinions.

    Sparrow - roo
    Pip - roo
    Miss RayRay - pullet
    Blackie - pullet
    Lulu - ? Seems *kinda* rooish to me
    Miley - pullet
    Ruby - ? but leaning towards roo
    Veronica - pullet

    Nice looking birds. [​IMG]

    That's about what I was thinking.

    They are sooooo spoiled, hubby says they get more treats than he does (then again he IS diabetic). ;o)

    An update on my flock...

    we have 10 left and 8 are roos!! We only have 2 girls, both RIR's and they just starting laying this past week.

    Sadly, Miss Ray Ray died after a lot of TLC. Veronica was pecked to pieces by the others for unknown reasons. And we came out to find Lulu laying in the coop, unknown cause.

    The 2 girls are now in a separate coop with Pip who was also getting picked on and happy happy happy.

    SPARROW's.... gotta be a Roo. I bet you think so too, since you took so many pictures of 'him'???


    My 6 month old Roo will stand very still and stare at me with his head and neck stretched high and still ....watching when I take a picture of him... The thing about the hens ducking and running is very true. I'm guessing based on posture in the pics since I don't know enough about all the different breeds to see the differences.

    I've heard this and found to be true... if you move any large or long item above their heads... (like when I'm working it the run and just making regular movements or when I've been in there raking)... the Roo will stretch his neck out and stand TALL... while the hens duck and run... the roo will get away too... but is constantly LOOKING trying to figure out what's going on.
