    I think I am seeing irridescent green in the tail, but it carries the tail low. Also seeing some irridesence and slight browns in the back feathers. Mama Hen was a mostly black blue egg laying EE and roo was a mostly black, pure Arcuana with a tail. I have a hatchmate of the same parentage carrying the tail at much more of an angle.

    Legs are a slate, not green.

    Rooster, I bet. Just based on how red the comb is and the green tail.

    Cockerel. He's going to get a very tall comb, too. I can tell he's got the comb from the Araucana.

    Thanks...I was afraid you all were going to say roo! If this is a roo, the other certainly is, too. I think I need another roo pen:)
