    I am really thinking this is a Roo.

    Its a second generation Olive egger - from EE and BCMaran.

    The comb is rather large and red, but are there any pointy saddle or hackle feathers?

    5 weeks old.

    Confirming my fear....I really love the coloring too!!

    Not seeing saddle feathers yet, where its a cross I am going to keep "it" a little while longer just in case.
    But the longer I look the more I think Roo.

    Very Handsome!

    I may keep him, I have a wicked soft spot for bluuuue [​IMG]

    But just wanted a opinion other than my own on whether or not it's a Roo.
