    Hi! [​IMG]

    Im just wondering...

    All of our pullets are 1 month old now, and all of their combs are so small, like... umm.....

    ------ like this size [​IMG]

    but one of the Americana's has a lot larger comb, about... Half a centimeter

    We were told their all pullets, but i'm not so sure about this one. [​IMG]

    Do you think shes really a Roo?? [​IMG]

    Please post, i need to know this so we can separate him/her from the others if he/she is a roo... were not breeders, we have them for eggs [​IMG]

    Pics are the best way for those in the know to take a guess.

    I have one right now that is nearly fully feathered. I am SO hoping it is a girl because I cant have a roo and I am in love with this baby. She isnt the friendliest or the prettiest. But she is fun to tease.[​IMG]
    My Speckled Sussex just doesnt react to things like my little mix chick does.

    We'd need pics. You don't need to worry about them breeding for a long time yet though [​IMG]

    There is always the chance that when you order pouletts you may get a boy.[​IMG] When I ordered, I ordered only girl Buff O. now I hope one is a roo.[​IMG]
