    Before I list him on craigslist, can I get some confirmation that he is, indeed, a roo?

    His mother is Blue Wheaten Ameraucana and his father is a Black Laced Red Wyandotte.

    He is the bravest of the bunch and the leader of the pack.

    Hatched February 8, so 6 weeks old tomorrow.

    if i was you i would give it another week just to make sure but yes the comb has got alot of colour for its age and like you said it is the 'leader' so by that i would say it is male, but its upto you to take the risk just incase he may not be male and then you would be selling people false information, have fun making your desicions[​IMG]

    I'm learning towards a cockerel but you might want to wait a few weeks before confirming that.
