    He is 4 months old. His sister is a little smaller than him and does not have a comb like his at all. He has not crowed yet though. Could he be our Roo??

    Although he is 4 months old ~ a little older than I orginally thought~ lets see what everyone else thinks!​

    I think so too. And just to be on the safe side, he is a Rhode Island Red Roo right?

    Now I just have to think of a name for our man. Thanks for your reply!

    ok sounds good. I didn't hatch him so the age could be off. And the age is off, I checked the calander and he is 13 weeks this Saturday. Glad you brought that up because it made me check the calendar. Thanks [​IMG]

    Haha ok yea he didn't look 4 months old! and then after I responded I noticed it said 4 months!! I know when hens get older they tend to get bigger combs and wattles~ so I thought I might have to eat my words [​IMG] You welcome!

    Looks roo-ish! My wyandotte roo didn't crow until it was about 19-20 weeks. He was hilarious! He only got the Cock-a-doo part. He's still working on it. [​IMG]
