    I've been thinking this Polish is a roo, as he was one of those "free exotic chicks" from McMurray. "He" has a cross-beak, but seems to eat and drink just fine.
    I thought I saw some saddle feathers, but then I read on one of the other posts that they don't develop until they're much older.
    He's 7 wks old in these photos.

    'Free exotics' are usually males but that bird doesn't look very rooish to me? No redness in the face and the crest is poofy.

    Well it's buff but not laced from the looks of it. I might be able to tell but I need a side shot of the nose.
