Do pointy tail feathers always make it a Roo? I've got some of my chicks (that were all purchased as pullets) that have grown these nice pointy tail feathers.....I will be pretty upset if half of my little flock turns out to be Roos!!! This was a few weeks ago...and I dont have any pictures of this ones tail because all of its tail feathers are rounded...but it is the "leader" of the flock, was the first to get any red in the comb, the first to get any hint of waddles (and they are all much larger now!) and has the biggest comb...but the tail feathers are rounded?? This was my first "suspected Roo" though....and I still have my doubts that its a Pullet... The rest are from about 2 weeks ago...I can try to catch them and take new pictures, but not much change other than getting redder and bigger combs, some growing waddles, and more feathers coming in. I havent seen any pointy feathers on the bodies of any of the chicks (they are all a little over 2 months old now, btw...about 2.5 months old)...but they are still growing and getting their adult feathers in. Another suspected Roo: (sorry, cell phone pictures of little chickens who have no desire to sit still!!) Another suspected Roo: Another suspected Roo: Will try to get better pictures later.... Also, how do you tell spur growth? Been checking them every other day or so, but they all have a little bump there, although it seems like on some, that little bump is getting bigger and on others it has not moved.
