    Voted roo, but now her head has filled in and her tail filled in so she doesn't have the handing feathers that looked like tail feathers. See some new pictures on this post and a picture of her egg!!!:

    Taking another look...hen or roo? Face is so clean, but tail has suspicious feathers... No crow, no eggs...

    If this is a roo, then why, at 21 weeks, is his face still so clean? Absolutely no red!
