    I need your help, which ones are roos? They are all between 4-6 weeks old!

    #1...It's comb is barely pink-ish, but it stands real tall and is more aggressive.
    Could it be a pullet?

    #2..This one is my favorite! Not sure on breed or sex. I want this one to be
    pullet, but assuming it's roo!

    #3...My first guess is roo! But it's a runt and so small.

    #4...This one is very aggressive. I don't think I'll be able to keep it.
    My son was helping me hold the chicks as we were taking pictures, and this chick
    actually grabbed my sons finger and shook it.

    #5...I'm guessing it's a roo!

    #6 I'm only posting this pic for comparison...This a red sexlink roo I'm 100% positive!
    But, It's comb is not even pink yet! as a chick it was white, in a bin of red sexlinks.
    I actually have pullets that have more of a comb then this guy!

    I think 1 & 2 are both pullets. I have a BO pullet at 5 weeks that has a good sized comb, and it's light colored like this. Your last roo is so pale.. he's deciving:)

    Quote:Don't be sorry, That's what I get for playing the lottery and buying straight runs! I bought the RSL roo on purpose, I knew what I was buying at the time, I'll be keeping him. All the others are suprises....I will either find them new homes or fatten them up for the freezer! Thanks everyone for your help, it seems that my suspitions are always right! Edited to add...Oh and I love the blues, I'll probably keep one and sell the other. Can anyone tell thier breeds?
