    I got this little fella as a freebee with some guineas I ordered. Can anyone tell me if it's a hen or a roo? It's about 10 wks old now. Thanks!

    With a comb that red at 10 weeks, you've got yourself a little roo. He's super cute!!! [​IMG]

    oooo such a pretty bird, I wish I had an all-white EE!

    It's a cockerel. Those legs could belong to an elephant, they're so thick!

    OK, thanks for your replies, that's what I figured. He is super sweet though & tame, although I don't need another roo.
