    This is a Salmon Favorelle cross (we don't know what the mama was), and it is about 15-16 weeks old. It is somewhat bigger than the other two from the hatch, and the comb is more prominent. I was certain it was destined to be a rooster, but so far I've not heard it crow at all, and I don't think I'm seeing any obvious saddle feathers. I'm not terribly familiar with Salmon Favorelles so I don't know if this plays into it or not. Any input?? Sorry for the millions of pictures, I took them with my phone and could only get so close... didn't know if one gave it away better than another one! Thanks in advance!

    I'm voting roo too. It looks like his hackles are pretty thin and pointy.
