Very young to tell. Would also need clear pics of comb and tail and stance. Age and breed would be helpful too. What is making you think roo?
My daughter wanted it an it was a straight run
With a comb that has that much red, I would be inclined to say it is a young roo. More pictures would definitley help though!
Thanks im in town an cant have a roo so i need to do something!?
Try to rehome him through Craigslist.
Based on the color of the comb, plus the wattle growth, I would say cockerel, but compare that bird to the other birds as that method has only 70% accuracy.
Read your ordinances carefully. You might have a pass until 6 months of age, and you certainly have until he starts crowing. That way you can be sure. Male feathering should show up around by 5 months old, even if he is not yet crowing. The male feathers I noticed first on my newly discovered cockerel are long curved tail feathers and pointy slender feathers off the back and down the sides behind the wings.
My bird is an Ameraucana at 19 weeks old. (My avatar)
