    Too early for me to tell, but if I had to guess, I'm saying the EE is a roo.

    Thanks. that seems to be what i was thinking. From what i understand, leghorns develop larger combs early but the roos combs turn red early.
    The EE has an awsome personality. I've always suspected he was a roo from early on. I wish i could keep him but one of my neighbors would hang me. I'll find him a good home where i can visit often.
    I'll post pics in a few weeks with my younger chicks.

    So the ones that you called Roos are the first ones to start a chest bumping play around the yard when i have them out. they are definetly more aggressive than the other 2. is that a sign that they are Roos? The EE is definatly dominate too and has the most personality. Im gunna hate getting rid of him.
