    Kept this game mix because I think he is a roo. But now I'm second guessing myself. Just turned 7 weeks. Sorry, cell phone pics.

    He does run off the neck chicks from feeders. But otherwise isn't acting roo-ish. He was the first to develop a comb. Thoughts?

    You think so? I'm so new lol. I'm not sure what "saddle feathers" are yet, so not sure if this has one or not.
