    Yep, thats a roo.

    Sebright roos pink up real quick, usually by 2 weeks old you will be able to tell whats what.

    I wouldn't lose hope just yet. Chickens with rosecombs come about different than single combed birds. Your bird's comb is still pale which could mean he is a she. It's also still on the small side and even seabright hens have fairly large combs.
