    Knowledgeable. Hmmm...

    Due to the size of it's legs and the lack of a tail, my vote would be that it is a roo.

    How old is it? I'm thinking pullet, since there is no comb/wattle development yet. The thick legs are a little concerning, though.

    I'm also thinking pullet, based off of lack of comb and wattles.

    I'm thinking pullet. Not sure why it's not more feathered out at this age, but at 6 weeks most cockerels that are production bred have decent combs.
