    8B0DA57E-CCAE-4A66-9398-547F5E3EE041.jpeg we were worried for a while that our EE chick in the front was a roo. i read that the reddish spots may be a sign of that? she has a reddish/gold coloration anyways, but i want to be sure. they’re about 6 weeks.

    Looks like a pullet currently. It is not the reddish color you have read about. Yours is more buff and white.
