Not too sure though, and we're not sure to call it a he or a she! It's both right now :) Here's the link to see all the pictures on that post... sorry, I would've put them here but there's a lot! Hope it's not against rules to direct you there :\ thanks to those who check it out!!

    Have to agree, my BO hens didn't have any red in their combs until right before they laid their first eggs and the combs wrre pretty much nonexistent until then

    That's so cute <3 he's one cuddly little roo... I also noticed he can be a bit aggressive. When my kitties go to sniff him he chases them away with karate kicks lol. If he really is a he, I'll be sure to find him a beautiful home with plenty of hens :)
