    I bought 25 pullets I think I have about 4 little roos. This group shot I think has one looking with his neck turned and I think the one in front of him. What do you think??

    Looks like you're right about that one. Look at their chest areas; usually, the breast on the cockerels is black rather than salmon brown.

    I also am agreeing. Whenever you see that much difference between the others in the flock, then it's pretty obvious that you have a roo. [​IMG] That's great! Now you have a guardian for your Welsummer flock. [​IMG]

    They are lovely, BTW!

    I've not noticed that, but the boys almost always have lots of black on the breast area.​

    These are the 4 I think might be roos. When looking at the pictures the birds on the right in each picture had blue dots on their heads and were suppose to be roos. Then the birds to the left in these 2 pictures were suppose to be hens. But I feel they are roos. What do you think? Do you think all 4 are roo? I banded the 2 they said were roos they have the purple bands on their legs but to me they could be hens?? Maybe?? Or all Roos??

    I have no experience with that type of chicken but looking a how big the combs are and te fact that they are already getting pronounced wattles I am going to say they definitely look like roos to me.
