    I have 10 total chicks(ranging in age from 1-6 weeks) these are the 2 that could be roos
    this is Amapola 6 weeks old, probably EE

    Both Roos. As for why.. D'uccles are really easy to tell. That much red in the comb at three weeks and that stance.. roo. The EE has roo coloring and is already getting pink. So I think both are roos. [​IMG]
