    Approx 6-7 weeks old?

    No wattles, pink comb, likes to challenge the other roo in the coop often. I don't know this breed well at all, and would love to get input on sex, and color. Is it a "blue" or something else?

    Natural lighting, no flash, comb looks a bit darker than it really is.

    I would say ROO!!! Here a pic of mine when he was 6 weeks, He is a roo, and never showed the redness early on! I just hatched 6 more, and they are 3wks, and I think they are all roos also. [​IMG]
