I have 8 babies that hatched and am having a hard time telling which are roos. Most have thicker legs, but only a few act roo-ish. I wonder if thicker legs always means a chick is roo? Can pullets get thicker legs as well? If it makes a difference, these are Wyandottes. Thanks!

This is the first time I've heard of thick legs meaning a cockerel........I've got three GLW chicks, and one is a rooster....so far I can't tell which one.....I'll have to look at their legs........

Very interesting!
