    This is my first time with chickens. I love them all so much! I can't believe they're already 3 weeks old. I have one Rhode Island Red, one Silver laced Wyandotte, one "Amaeraucana", Two Buff Orpingtons, and two Hybrids. Can you guess which one is the rooster? (; haha

    I'll give you a hint!

    He's supposed to be a SLW and Welsummer hybrid. I can't wait to see what he looks like when he's grown!

    He is quite obvious, hopefully he's not too much of a rooster with that pink of comb at that age.

    That pink comb gives him away. All those chicks of yours are adorable! You'll have to post more pics of them as they grow.[​IMG]

    He's a bit fiesty. He jumps on all the other chicks backs and kinda bosses them around. Should I separate him? Surprisingly he's the smallest of all my chicks. I don't think he's hurting them right now but I don't want that to change.

    Small little update:

    They grow up so fast! This morning when I woke up I heard what sounded like a distressed chick. I go over to the cage to look and my little rooster is trying to crow! It's the cutest thing I've ever seen and the noise he makes (for now) is darling.

    Since he is the smallest, wonder if he has a Napoleon complex.
