    I think those pretty red wattles cinch the vote for Roo-sometimes a pullet will develop a comb early, even reddish as opposed to pink-but I have not seen the pullets develop the wattles so young.

    Pretty boy though!

    Definitely roo. My 11 week old hens still have yet to grow any waddle to ammount to anything. He is pretty though.
