    The comb looked like a roo to me too but tail shape is different and I've been trying to check for saddle feathers. It has a brother from the batch and his tail feather curl around and obvious saddle feather and crows now. This has different mannerisms.

    It's just slower to mature than it's hatch mate, but that's all boy.
