    I had this chick and I saved her life, now it's looking like it might be a roo. All the others looks like the one on the right. Lily on the left, was developing slower than the others and used to have a limp and sleep alot. She's all better but she's still smaller than the others, although seeming more advance with her comb, hmmm....is she a he?

    The legs look a little bigger too. It does look like a roo, but I dont think you can be too sure untill it gets older.

    oh my...didn't really want a roo, well lets see how it is. Although my daughter said "after we saved him, we can't eat him" which is true.

    Thanks to all

    Thats funny my Lilly turned out to be a Roo. He is now a Louie. Your Lilly looks like a Roo to me.

    Looks like a roo to me too. All of my Buffs barely had any comb, still don't even at 15 weeks.

    I had a chick that we saved...the vet did. She swallowed a string and had to have surgery! Now she is a HE and we can't eat him either![​IMG]!
