    I've got a little Banty from a grab bag of eggs. It came from a small blue egg, so I know it has EE/Ameraucana in it.

    Comb is not as developed as I would have thought for a roo by now, but isn't the patterning, especially the barring just across the wings, indicative of roo?

    Thanks for your opinions.

    Too soon to tell I think. If it gets any darker red patches on the wings it will be a roo. The comb in one of the pictures looks pretty pink, and my four girls are the same age with no comb development at all which also makes me think roo.
