    Need help with this,got 4white rocks in addition to 6RR and 4 Barred. When can you tell if there is a rooster in the lot? I m thinking that one or two of the whites may be roosters,they always seem to square off and seem bigger than the other whites.They are almost 9 weeks old,is there any distinguishing features that tell you that they are males? There wattles seem to be bigger than the others,but is it genetics or sex.Help!!!![​IMG][​IMG][

    I have 2 white rocks, pretty sure they are both girls but one developed comb/wattles much earlier than the other. She was also larger and more feathered out when we got them as "day-old chicks" so I suspect she may have been a week older when we got her.

    Can you post pictures? A lot of people can probably help you based on that.
