    Due to its longer legs and blown back crest, my first guess is boy.

    Would love an update someday! [​IMG]

    Pick it up by the lower back of the neck. If it struggles with you possible Roo. If it goes limp right - a - way possible pullet.
    Don't know the odds of being right but has worked for me "a lot of times"
