    To refresh I got this bantam chick and posted it up here. The general consensus was that it is a Sicilian Buttercup. Now it's grown a bit so here is an update and of course now I'm wondering is it a roo?
    Thanks a million!!

    It's hard to say for certain without seeing it's ears, but I believe you actually have a Gold Campine, not a Buttercup.

    If it was a Buttercup, it would have a cup shaped comb (hence the name). Unfortunately Campines are 'hen-feathered', which means roos won't develop the tell-tale hackles and saddle feathers. This complicates gender ID.

    Judging by stance and comb alone, I'd say you have a male.

    Definitely a bantam. My Black Copper Marans in the back of the one picture are actually about a month a half younger than him and they make him look like a baby.

    Ok so a boy! He sure is pretty, I might just keep him around...
