    I think this BLRW chick may be my new rooster - what do you guys think?[​IMG]

    The comb is much more pronounced on this chick at 6 wks than on the others, and so are the wattles. Seems to be a dominant bird also....

    Hope this pic turns out! [​IMG]

    I got 5 blrw chicks last year and only 1 looked like a girl to me. I thought they all were boys because they looked and acted more roo-ish. It turned out to be 1 roo and 4 pullets [​IMG] I think they were almost 5 months old and i was still feeling confused.
    I suggest trying to enjoy them and dont worry about it til you are sure. I think there is still a very good chance that it could be a girl too. My girls looked more boyish than that at that age.

    I'd love to see its feet.

    Too early for me to tell.
