    It seems as if its growing a very rooish tail and also some hackle feathers, comb also looks a little too reddish, I'm gonna say roo.

    well she seems to be similarly shaped to the others so are you saying they are all roos? i only posted her again because before people thought she looked like a roo, I thought she was starting to look less and less rooish.

    No I am just saying that her or his tail feathers are looking a bit too pointy, females tail feathers are usually more roundish​

    that's what i've heard but actually it's the feathers on the small of the back that matter, not the tail feathers themselves. also my friend has a hen that looks exactly like a rooster but it lays eggs so it's definitely a hen.

    I think the first time you posted, I said I wasn't convinced about it being a roo, said you still had hope for a pullet. [​IMG]

    Then the next post, I went towards roo.

    NOW I'm still not sure. Is it ok if I go back to pullet??? [​IMG]

    Either way, you have a cutie!
