Anyone have a good pic of a Partridge Rock rooster?

    If possible, could someone show me a pic of a PR roo full grown and at approx. 6 wks?

    MPC was supposed to send me 3 hens and 1 roo of PR breed. They didn't hatch enough and only sent one chick, but did not indicate if hen or roo. I really wanted to have a rooster out of the bunch, and I haven't decided if mine is either or. I would post a pic, but my camera is acting up big time.

    He/she appears to have a little more comb than the White Rock hens of the same age, but doesn't have the rooster carriage. Sort of shaped like a hen and has the feathers of the hen, but would he be having any characteristic rooster feather patterns at this age? If so, what would they appear to be?

    Sorry about not being able to post a pic, y'all.

    Here is a picture of my partridge rock rooster at about 12 weeks of age. He had alot of comb, but looked like the hens at this age. I sold him shortly after the picture was made, so I don't know what he looks like full grown.

    My 6 wk old looks exactly the same size and development as yours, Jubaby, so that gives me hope! I've been observing him the last couple of days and he is larger than all the hens, slightly, and is showing some roostery behavior now. Thanks for the pic, it helped tremendously! The pics on the aforementioned site were not quite as helpful, but yours looks just like my bird!
