    [​IMG] sorry, that is definately a roo. From the first pic it kind of looked like one of mine from McMurray. She's very poorly marked and very dark with a few light feathers here and there. So, I retract my previous statement [​IMG]

    At three months with a comb like that, and colors like those, definitely rooster. Beautiful though!
