    Well, my Cuckoo Bluebar is almost 4 weeks old. I'm terrible at sex determination by my spidey sense thinks I have a roo. I'm really hoping I am wrong though, and she's pulling to good ole bait and switch on me. HER comb is still very white, but the tail leads me the other way. I have looked at may photos of this breed in the other forums and I'm still just not convinced. Thoughts?

    I say you got yourself a little pullet!! But if at about 6 weeks you see any red than it's most likely a roo. But for now it's a pullet. :)

    That means there is HOPE! YES! As for the red, I didn't think even the roos had rad, except maybe in their comb/wattle. Thanks for your input. [​IMG]
