    I got six one-day-old pullets on June 19th. My husband and I have suspected that one may actually be a roo.
    This is a 7 week old Black Australorp. Tell me what you think?

    Ok, so now what do I do? I already have one 18 week old roo (very bossy) with 11 hens. I don't suppose I could keep another roo?
