    [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]Not sure exact age. But this little guy/gal belongs to a coworker of mine. He purchased from a reputable hatchery as a sexed hen at 2 days old. Looking through pics online I can see both traits. Hasn't started crowing and doesn't act very dominant. Thanks in advance. My personal opinion is roo but I'm not overly familiar with the breed.

    I"m guessing cockerel as well, based mainly off the comb. I can't see any saddle feathers or pointy hackle feathers, though.
