I would be glad to be told that I am wrong but I think Smoke is a rooster. We were worried that Ink (the black one) was the rooster based on the behaviours she was displaying, but looking at tail feathers and comb development, I think Smoke now has one foot out the door. Too bad because I really like the red spots that are showing up on her shoulders! Smoke out front Ink (suspected roo no more!) Chick #3 Smoke and Chick #4 They are all 7-8 weeks old.
