    Yep I see why he has you confused! But I think it's definitely a roo with those saddle feathers. [​IMG] Just really small comb/wattles...maybe a late bloomer! I've got a couple that are dark like that, too.

    Good luck finding him a home! He's awfully pretty.

    Thanks Crunchie! I am so glad to see that I am not the only one who thought could be a pullet. I saved ZeeBoo out of the clutch that I hatched thinking he was a pullet and had a home all lined up for him. Now because ZeeBoo is more then likly a roo his home fell through [​IMG]

    I would keep him, but I do not need two boys!! Actually, I am not even suppost to have one roo LOL [​IMG]

    A broody of mine hatched 9 chicks recently and I could have swore that they were all pullets, they were all so dark! I knew that was too good to be true, though. After a couple weeks I could tell that I had 3 roos and 6 pullets but I still have too look closely at a few of them. This is part of the reason why I'm keeping a very light roo I hatched from another breeder--so I can hopefully enhance the sex-linked color trait of the Cuckoos in my flock. I'm way too impatient to wait to see who's who! [​IMG]

    I'm trying to find homes for a mess of roos myself right now--I know how hard it is!
