    Sorry for the pictures not being the best. My daughter took them. I have someone that is taking my other cockerals tomorrow and want to give her this one if it is a cockeral.

    Thanks for ya'lls help...

    It has a big comb for it to be so young and a girl. I am thinking roo. But it is a little hard to tell. Do you have any
    other ones the same age from the same place?

    Can you post a straight-on, close-up photo of the comb? It would make it easier to tell gender.

    I do and they are not red at all - I am thinking cockeral, especially for this breed.

    See if this helps. To the right is another one from the same hatching, same breeding.

    After that last photo, I am leaning even more toward roo. That comb not only red but is rather wide.
    What do you think jjrabbit2 ?

    I agree, his comb looks very rooish.
