    I have 1 of my BO chicks that I am wondering about. It is about 8 weeks old, has very prominent tail feathers, nice dark red/pink comb and wattles that are about 1/4" long already. No red on the face.

    Roo or Pullet??

    Amy, can you post a pic? It's very hard to tell from description alone.

    From just what you are describing I would go with a roo. I have an 8 week old orp and she has no waddles at all yet and very light comb but only like 1/8 inch high so far.
