    they are out of the basement and in their new digs! 3 1/2 wks olds and seriously well feathered we've got the heat lamp hooked up and prepared to add a space heater if we need to. anyhow! we think the one my husband is holding is a roo, is it? he's soooo much lighter than the other br we have. also any other's stand out as roo's?

    Yes the one being held is a Roo. If the barred in the center of the first pic is not the same one, then it is probably a roo too.

    ah man, that's what we thought. and yes its the same. we dont want more chix, is it possible to keep him away from the ladies while they free range? or is he doomed to the freezer? he's so friendly we really do like him but I fear our neighbors will be not so accomidating w/a roo. [​IMG]
