    I sort of think it's a roo, too, from that angle. It looks like it has the start of sickle feathers. Can you get a picture of it from the side (not a top view)?

    Could be a cockerel..... but doesn;t look very rooish to me. I think her feathers are just very ruffled... I know some of my hens have lots of fluff on the rump.... LOL [​IMG]
