    I fall into the "wait until it lays or crow" crowd as I know how easily it is to be fooled by a late developing cock or more often an early developing female...

    However, if I had to place my bets, I would bet this is a roo.

    7 weeks old as of tomorrow.

    What do you all think?

    Rooster for sure. He has light coloring, which is indicative of a male barred rock, and a very roosterish stance.
