    I am concerned more with the comb that anything else. He/She is ten weeks old. I have 2 Amerecauna girls just like this one that are about five months old and don't have a prevalent comb. What are your thoughts?


    Thanks,

    Jonathan

    Nothing looks suspicious to me. Do you have a better picture of the bird? Saddle,hackle feathers?

    I wouldn't count it as a Roo yet.

    That comb looks pretty small to me for a 10 week old chick - usually a roo's comb is more prominent than that, even a roo's pea comb. I think you'll have to wait a few more weeks and then post full body pics of this chick.

    not sure looks "iffy" have to wait a few weeks.. look at legs.. some roos legs are thicker than the same size chick that is a girl.. varies from breed to breed
