    I would definitely say its a rooster he's got the tail feathers coming in and his comb is big and red

    not sure... i bought three different colored birds at a fair august 17th. i thought they were 6 weeks old then but the man i bought them from was not very helpful as they were not his birds. this is what it looked like when we first got it...[​IMG] [​IMG] the "red" bird stays very close all the time and becomes distressed if you pick the white one up. I cant wait to know for sure what they are so i can name them....due to zoning laws we are unable to have any Roos'

    He said he is a sex link. (I know nothing about sex links, although I took care of some as chicks years ago LOL)

    Looks like a male, especially with the picture of him as a 6 week old.

    I can hear him crowing from here. Strange how my favorite hen always turns out to be a roo. You'll know soon enough. My 2 roos always gave me the eye, even when tiny fuzz balls.
