    Comb is too big for that age. I'll say roo.

    Wow, this one is really hard! The dark color makes me think female but the comb and wattles are pretty developed. Maybe this picture will help. It is of my two 3 month old roos.

    That much comb at that age says roo. The darker overall color says it's not a pure barred rock but had one barred parent and one non-barred parent.
