    A roo for sure! The comb is very red for 9 weeks, the saddle feathers are pointy and drooping over the tail, and the vibrant red/orange splotchy colouring is commonly associated with roosters in EEs. He's a handsome boy all right.

    Yes, the saddle feathers confirm it, in addition to the comb.

    [​IMG] I hope you're all right. My son wanted a rooster but I didn't order one and didn't want to get one later (no place to quarantine here so I'd have to put it right in).

    forgot to mention that he acts like he's going after the dog quite a bit. They're in a run and she's outside the fence but he goes for her anyway. She doesn't even seem to notice.
