here is the *roo* that hatched with that nice golden color.

I can't remember if this is the one I'm keeping or placing, but it is a roo definitely, right?
they didn't want their pic taken

Second one is DEFINITELY a roo... Not sure about the first. Comb pics would help! Judging by the skin around the beak vs. the white-headed roo, I'd say pullet, but I'm not 100% sure.
first one's comb is just as red. I was curious what color

was supposed to be wheaten/blue wheaten, but doesn't look like the rest
The second picture is a wheaten roo, the feathers on the head will change and by the time he is about 6-8 months old, he should have the correct plumage.

The first picture is of a roo also, it is what should have been a blue wheaten. I have a hen that has more buff color to it in my breeding pen. Obviously, I need to remove her and put her in the laying facility as she is not throwing quality chicks.

Looks like you have a few roosters there......
The "red one" as my kids call him, is extremely friendly. I only got one pullet out of wheaten/blue wheaten
. Jean can you tell me what color the roo in front of the "red one" is, facing the same direction, that is the same color as my only pullet too.
I will get a pic tomorrow. I would bet blue wheaten. In your opinion, if you could keep one roo, which would be the best color? The only pullet looks identical to the *blue wheaten*, what are the color possibility of wheaten X blue wheaten or blue wheaten X blue wheaten ?
