    I have been back and forth on the sex of one of these two. One I am 100% sure is a roo. The other I'm back and forth on. They are about the same age, approximately 21-23 weeks. I was convinced they were both roos but one was just a slow maturing. Then a tiny dark egg showed up in the egg box today so now I'm wondering if I do in fact have a pullet. I have other pullets in that coop but none should lay that dark of an egg except a marans.

    The one with the brown neck looks like a roo. The other one is hard to tell.

    That's were I'm stuck too. I have been back and forth on the other one.

    The roo is a lovely guy the one in question is a bit shy though very sweet. It's comb and wattles are about the same size as the roos and it has a bit of golden speckling.
