    He/she is about 6 weeks I think? I picked out of 3 when they were about 3 weeks? and this one had the lightest colored comb area but now it's looking awfully red, I'm thinking it might be a roo.

    I kept looking for saddle feathers on mine and felt totally safe since he didn't have any. Then, BAM, at twelve weeks, skinny, shiny saddle feathers everywhere. I should have gone by comb color.

    This was my guy at eight weeks.

    he/she seems to already be a bit aggressive. Which also makes me think roo. He will try to peck me, but is fine once I pick it up. If it turns out to be aggressive as an adult he'll have to go. However, I think he will be good looking. Time will tell!
