    I'm thinking my EE is a Roo. I hope not, I rather have eggs than dinner. It is about 16 weeks

    This is what I see...

    Roo traits

    Pointy neck feathers, saddle feathers, red comb, kinda long legs.

    Non roo traits.

    Not trying to jump on any of my hens, no crowing.

    Here are the pics, what do you think?

    oh it's a roo to me, looks alot like my roo, who was meant to be a she. Mine finally just crowed two days ago, I think he scared himself when he did it too. he's about 16-18 weeks.

    Thanks everyone, that was what I was thinking. So would there be anyone out there wanting an EE roo for any reason? Or is chicken dinner the most logical option since keeping him not going to happen.

    Right now he runs & hides from the mature girls and they take their shots at him when he gets too close. he must be just too young and small to impose his will on them yet.
