    Pics taken at 3 weeks of age. I know it might be a little early still to tell for sure, but...I am thinking this chick is looking undeniably roo-ish, so I would love to hear what some of you think.

    Well if the comb and wattles didn't do it for you, you've got proof in the feather color! LOL!

    Quote:I don't know yet, but I think we might. Besides this little guy, there are still two other rooster "suspects" in our small group of 7 chicks...which would only leave us with 4 pullets, if I am right. We weren't planning to get a rooster so early on, not until we had more hens to keep him happy. And if there are 3 roos...we'll have to decide which one to keep, if any. I do like the BR's though.

    Nice little BR boy. Gotta love BR's more often than not the roos are OBVIOUS early. Comb wattles, stance, color all screaming roo by three or four weeks.
