    So Sorry....I tried to copy the pics from another thread but the process failed.

    The pics I am referring to are under a thread (topic) called "New Hamps...Boy or Girl..."

    My ? is How can you tell that bird is a roo??
    I have a BO who looks just like it ...supposedly a hen.

    Thanks and sorry again about the pic ...or lack of.

    Quote:For me it was the thick legs and the wattles. Look at your birds in question and compare them to some of the others in the group (if you have any other the same age). Look at the legs, wattles, comb and their attitude (how they interact with the other chicks) of the chicks you have in question.

    Or just post some pics of your bird (birds) in question.
