    these are my two rir -(lucy and cookie)- just about 3 and a half weeks old. never had chickens before but "lucy" has tree trunk legs, a redder comb and a totally different "rooish" tail...
    also, lucy seems to herd the rest of the flock and is definately the most self assured and outgoing...
    any thoughs?

    this is cookie - girl?

    It may be a little early to tell yet but I'm thinking your hunch is right. Lucy may become a Luke.

    From the stance and the character you describe, you definitely may have a little roo there.

    i have three chicks i suspect to be roos (lucy included) - any suggestions on which roo to keep -
    if i am right then i'll have one wyandotte roo, one barred rock (who at 3 weeks is a bit aggressive already) and lucy the rir roo...
