I’m suspecting this one to be a roo, but I wanted to see what others thought too

    I agree, sorta. How does the comb and leg diameter compare to the others? It's pretty young yet. I'm waffling around here, though. Probably pullet.

    They are slightly larger but she (hopefully) is a larger bird. I would think a rooster would be slightly bigger but :idunno
