    I think the first one is your roo. Bigger feet, stands taller, and has no tail. That's how my roo started.

    I agree. #1 is your roo, look at how his feathers are almost all the same length (this usually is roo feathering), compared to the 2nd chick where the feathers are in different layers, I call them Angel Wings, because they remind me of them, and this type of feathering usually is pullet feathering. I do think that there are a few breeds that this does not work on, but generally, when I sex based off the feathering this way, I have gotten them right.
