    [​IMG]I was wondering how can I tell if I might have a roo in the mix of my pullets? How are their characteristics different? I ordered 15 chicks from Ideal and they are supposed to be all females, but as you all know, a roo can get in the mix by mistake. Got Production Black, Barred Rocks and Danish Brown Leghorns.

    Well, only way to tell is wait for secondary sex characteristcs. Or wait till 6 weeks old, get pictures post them and we can guess!

    Quote:You know, I haven't figured out how to post pictures. I'm frustrated with myself as I'm not a computer buff and can't quite understand about the picture posting thinger. I'm gonna try to get some family members who are computer smart and get them to teach me how to use the thing.
