    I'm thinking roo coz I'm seeing shiney looking feathers that could be pointy....especially with those big wattles.

    Could we get a full body pic???

    I have a 17 week BO and her comb and wattles are no where near that one's size. [​IMG]

    I'd have to say a Roo and that is my final guess! [​IMG]

    Do you have any pics of the tail? He/she/it looks a lot like my 20 week old BO pullet--wattles, comb and all.

    Quote:Actually in that shot she looks much more hennish.

    (What we need is a side view, of saddle feathers and tail feathers.)

    It's gorgeous which ever it is! I have girls with really big wattles, and they are really loud.

    I am going with hen as she looks like mine did at 17 weeks. Would have to see sho of her tail/saddle feathers to be absolutely sure.
