    This is the lone chick that I had from some red star offspring that I got from a friend, which I am told is no longer sexlink but just a mutt. So I was wondering if anyone could tell me your opinion if this is a pullet or a baby roo. I am hoping for a pullet because if it's a roo I have to get rid of him because I live in town.

    If it is a roo it's a very wimpy one. I have 3 red stars that keep trying to attack this poor baby. He/she runs around like crazy tyring to avoid them. It still has it's silkie momma who protects he/she sometimes but now everytime I go out he/she follows me around and tries to jump on me. It's really cute but sad because it's a nervous wreck all the time.

    Sorry, I forgot to add that he's 6 weeks old. I kind of have a bad feeling that it might be a roo.
