    I'm kind of leaning towards cockerel.....even at a little bit older than your baby, my Jordan still wasn't pinking up at all in the comb or wattles. Beautiful RIR! [​IMG]

    At 7 weeks, that's a cockerel.

    Lol you will get different opinions, the only reason I say roo is that I have a RIR that looked exactly like that at that age and he was a roo, you may find out that it turns out to be a hen. My dad always says when it crows you'll know....lol
