    I fear one of my 2 BLRW is a roo. The one on the left is larger and has big attitude.[​IMG] Also more comb and huge yellow feet.

    Check out those tree trunk legs! WOW! [​IMG] I'd say roo, but post pics in a couple weeks and see what his comb looks like.

    Here is a up front shot of them roosting next to our 10 week old bantam cochins. It's what I think isn't it? [​IMG] please be a girl!

    Yep, looks like a roo with the red wattles and comb compared to the yellow comb and lack of wattles on the pullet. Sorry [​IMG] Very pretty birds! [​IMG] Who did you get them from? They look just like my three week old BLRW chicks I hatched from shipped eggs from a BYC member.
    Here is a picture of one of my BLRW rooster chicks at 6 wks for comparison on the left, pullet on the right.

    He has a very sweet expression, which is a good sign that he will be a gentle rooster. The picture I posted of my rooster chick (he is now 14 wks) is the one I'm keeping because he just wants to be petted and comes and lays beside me when I'm cleaning the pen. He would be up in my lap if he could [​IMG] These are my first BLRW's and I just love how calm, friendly and gentle they are! [​IMG]
