    Hi everyone.
    A new member Gretamae would like to know if this buff is a roo. Can some you experts please assist?
    Since I am always wrong in here, I'm gonna say it is a roo. (Cause she would like it to be a hen. [​IMG] )
    I am posting for her, because she just joined. Thank you very much. Imp

    How old? Oh gosh, I'll have to do some thinking. The second picture is more recent (does the snow give that away?) and she/he is maybe seven months? Might be eight.

    I am by no means an expert but the neck feathers look rooish yet the comb is smaller than I would think if you are right on the age. A better picture and exact age would be more helpful. [​IMG]
    Let us know what he/she is when you know for sure ( if "she" lays n egg)!!
