    This is my first hatched chickie... Pistol Pete. I have heard many say that the first egg hatched is always a roo [​IMG] So, even though it hatched from my pullet side (you'll have to go and read my post on sexing eggs...LOL) I went with the idea that it MUST be a roo since it was first to hatch [​IMG] BUT.... it doesn't look at all rooish to me [​IMG] No idea on breed... is a mutt from a friends amish mutt eggs [​IMG]

    Oh yeah, it's about 5 weeks old.

    I tried to get a pic of Pete standing... but he/she kept running off [​IMG] LOL

    Roos don't always hatch first. In my case they are the ONLY thing to hatch [​IMG]

    It looks girly to me. [​IMG]
