    Someone told me on here that if the top of the comb line goes up past the eyes, it's a roo. Maybe that will help.

    I certainly appreciate pictures of the rir's. I've been trying to sex my 3 babies (now about 4 weeks old). One of them (the last one I bought on a whim) has shown dominate behavior since I brought her/him home. But it's also the friendliest or most curious. Have a bad feeling. Anyway, your post is certainly food for thought! Thanks.
