    Hey Guys, I know it's early to be sexing, but one of my BCM chicks is Much larger, feathering faster, has tree trunk legs, and it's comb is growing much faster. Do you think it's a Roo? The two bigger are 15 days old, and the small one is 12 days old. What do you think? [​IMG]

    Yes that looks like a roo to me. Its early to really tell yet though. Is that a lot of red/brown coming in on his wings or is it a heat lamp shinning on his feathers?
    Its cute!

    Cockerel indeed. Looks like he'll be quite "mossy" too. (the extra brown)

    Quote:Yah, I didn't get to see the parent stock, so wasn't sure what I would get, but this is the one chick out of the three I didn't think would be mossy, the other two had much more red baby fuzz.

    My sister gave me a very mossy hen. She's purdy to me and I love those dark chocolate eggs! I named her miss Kate! [​IMG]

    Quote:LOL, How cute! I'm happy with them, I'm not looking to breed, just want some dark eggs to add to my basket, so I am happy [​IMG] Hopefully the other two turn out to be hens [​IMG]
