    This is just a guess- but I'm going to say roo. I'm just going by the color. I'm sure one of the game people will step in and correct me [​IMG]

    It's a roo and once he gets through with his juvenile molt he will be Black breasted-red color. I've got two grown and two more with coloring just like the one pictured here. I call it the ugly stage.

    Quote:Pretty sure it should be single like the LF type.
