    Too young yet, and always hard to tell from a pic.

    We have one as well. It is the first one we have ever had. It looks very much like the one pictured. My grandson wants to show him in 4H. At what age can you tell whether they are up to it or not?

    For most birds it easier to tell color quality once they are through thier first molt into full adult feather, color can change a lot with each molt. For Type it varies widely based on breed, some mature physically much slower and some fatser. I like to wait and judge my pullets no earlier than 6 month, and cockrells no earlier than 10 months. for Wyandotte and LF cochin as well as many other large breeds final body size and type can take as long as 16-18 months.

    Looks like a rooster to me [​IMG] and yes he looks like he will be blackish. Kinda like mine. Must be pretty young cause his comb is not very large. But yes it is a rooster or looks to be one. I dont have any Andalusian hens so not sure exactly what a hen looks like as far as Andalusians go. I do have 3 easter egger hens though [​IMG] If youd like to see them I can post pics for you [​IMG]
