    This little one has me stumped. Wondering what your thoughts are on this 8 week old mix? Roo or pullet?

    You can tell by his wattle and his saddle(back feathers) and hackle(neck feathers) feathers coming in nice and long.

    Bright red comb and wattles, under 10 weeks old, it's a cockerel for sure.
