    I keep going back and forth wondering if this is a roo or pullet. It has the three row comb and was born on 06/29/09 so it's little over 8 weeks old now.

    Here are the pics.....

    Rooster. He's already getting the shiny pointy roo feathers- there's a dark patch with several of them on his "shoulder"

    I thought it was a roo but I don't see any saddle feathers coming in yet.....darn, I was really hoping it was a pullet. The coloring is so pretty. I can't keep a roo. I guess I will give him away to a good home.

    I don't really see the pointy feathers, maybe it's just my eyes. However, that's a pink comb for an eight-week old. That does argue for a roo.

    The only possible comfort I can offer you is that it doesn't seem to stand like a roo, at least in those pics.

    Do you have others to compare comb color with?
