    Thank you! I thought my Barred Rock looked a little rooish too. Here is a picture at 1 week of age to see what you think.

    I agree with sonew123,

    Sweetheart
    Peppy
    polar all look like boys.
    Some silkies show definite boyness in the crest & comb at 5 weeks.
    Some can wait till 5 months.

    On the other hand, you did get some girls,
    1and BYC is a really good place to find
    quality homes for the boys if you're persistent [​IMG]

    I have a question, how come you think that Polar is a roo, but not Bear? They are the same size in comparison. [​IMG]

    Quote:If I do decide to home the boys, this will be the first place that I turn to. It's going to be hard because the 3 that are turning out to be boys are my babies. Absolute sweeties and it's going to be difficult to give them up. I just might have to find them some girls and keep them. Although, the hubby might make me sleep in the coop with them! [​IMG]
