    Hi,
    If I were to compare the 4 chicks @ 2 1/2 months old, I have 2 alike and 2 different. 2 have larger combs. So I think I have 2 roos....
    Can you offer opinion?
    Is the Japanese banty with comb in the picture a roo, do you think?
    The 2 pullets pictured are RIRXDel. Ruby and Freckles...you can almost see Freckles lovely spots.
