    Thanks for the replies.
    I am thinking the same thing, however out of 18 eggs 13 hatched. All but 5 have a lot of copper and it is also starting along the backs and wings. The other 5 are all still fairly dark, little to no copper yet, and the combs are very small and more whitish.

    I was surprised with this blue one. I ended up with two blue & copper, this one and the other I am fairly certain is a pullet.

    These pictures were at 7 weeks, they are now 8.5 weeks and the copper is really starting to show up more.

    Yeah they start to get a bit of copper in the bodies if they are roos. I have some pullets little older than yours, copper coloring only in the neck.

    Looks like a roo to me as well.

    Red in the body, especially on the top portion of the wing, is a pretty good indicator of roo!
