Almost 4 weeks ago we went to the feed store to get 3 barred rock hens. Now that they are older, I don't think that's what we got. I admit I am by no means an expert, but it looks like we have a roo, a hen, and some breed that I don't know of. I'm hoping someone could help me out please. Thank you very much. The first 2 pics are of the questionable bird. The third is of the hen, and the 4th is of the roo, I believe.

Thank you. Can anyone confirm if the one BR is indeed a roo? I was hoping to not have one, and if it is indeed a roo, I'm afraid he will end up as dinner in a few months.

Oh, my neighbors will not be pleased
Poor guy, maybe I'll find someone who needs a roo and try to give him away first before making him into dinner.

It's really really hard to tell at such a young age. The first two could also be Black Giants. Baby chicks all look very similar at such a young age.

wait on making the diagnosis on the "boy" sometimes, like with my angel, the comb seems to grow to a point and then stop, making a hen! if that made any sense.... :|
