    2 almost 3 weeks. We were told that it was a pullet batch, but the "chicken lady" at our feed store thought this one was a roo!
    Has a crazy character to it so either way, we are thrilled but I do think it's a roo too. Comb is pretty red and his head seems rounder than the other pullets we have

    What is everyone's guesses?! [​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC!

    That cutie is still way too young to say for certain but, at almost 3 weeks, "he" is definitely looking suspicious.

    x2. If it's not even three weeks yet and has a comb and the beginnings of wattles already, it has to be a roo.

    Just an update: at 3 weeks old, Red is definitely a Roo. His comb is red as a fire engine and his wattles are already red and tiny but coming down. His comb at 3 weeks is as big as our 11 week old hens! How crazy is that!!
    I'm still having some issues getting pictures to attach from my phone but there's no doubt in my mind this one is definitely a boy!
