    Here is my 4 week old Buff Orpington Butterscotch who is showing roo-ish signs. Has anyone had a BO who looked like this at 4 weeks and then went on to lay eggs and cackle? I fear this will be a repeat of the old Blaine (cute roo EE) from my last flock.
    Thank you.

    Thank you all for your help in posting photos and in sexing dear little Butterscotch. Unhappy news to hear he is a boy, but it helps that you understand how I feel.

    I have two Cuckoo Marans, age 5 1/2 weeks, Butterscotch and Goldie, 4 week old BO's, and Marshmallow and Peep, Delawares age 4 weeks. Total flock is 6 little birds. Since I will have to rehome darling little Butterscotch as soon as he crows, is it too late to add other babies to the flock, if I can find some around the same age?
