    This little darling belongs to a friend of mine. We think he's a roo and would like your opinion.

    Are y'all basing this on the comb size or the color?

    My BR hens have large combs and wattles. They also have a black/grey streak down the front of the leg. Some, but not all, are darker grey than the roo's. Roos tail is less pointy and fluffier. Just by looking, I think this is a roo.
