I need as much advice as possible on this bird, really hope it is a girl, if it is a boy i will have to give it away, there is no way my neighbours will put up with it if it is a boy!! I just dont want to be too quick to give it away until im sure what it is!! 19-20 weeks old!!

No doubt that is a roo.... sorry
If that was a pullet with that red of combs and wattles she would be laying like crazy. Pullets would not have much of a comb at that age and would not be that red or that big. He is not crowing yet???? Mine have been crowing since they were about 2 mths old.

Quote:I don't have cuckoo's but I do have marans and the roos were pretty obvious at 2 weeks by two months there was no doubt. No chance that is a girl sorry.

This is a blue copper marans roo



This is a pullet not the best pic but you will get the idea



not the lack of size and color in the comb and waddles. I have 9 marans roo and 5 pullets and I know roos!!!

Sorry.
