    So, this is 3rd time I am posting pictures, the chicks are now about 5 or 6 weeks old. Cluck- Cluck is my daughters chicken and if ti turns out to be a ROO it has to go. I have tried to prepare her based on previous responses.

    Yes, it's a cockerel, but not sure if it's a BR (legs should be yellow, not white)
