Please tell me Zoe is not a roo....I swear lately she is looking more upright, leggier, and her tail feathers have me paranoid. Also what is she/he crossed with do you think?
Heres the latest pics at 3 months:
(crosses would be from:
Black Copper Marans Roo, Wheaten Marans Roo, Blue Ameraucana Roo, Welsummer Roo over the following hens:
Cuckoo Marans, Deleware, Welsummer, Wheaten Marans, Black, Blue and Wheaten Ameraucanas.)

If Zoe is only about 12wks, I would guess it's a rooster. It's kind of hard for me to see if it has hackle/sickle feathers because of the patterning, but it's tail feathers do look roosterish.

I have 3 cuckoo maran pullets from Ideal and they're weeks and none have a comb that big or red. So I would think it's a rooster. I do have two red frizzle bantam roosters same age and they are crowing and chasing the girls. In fact they showed agressive behaviour weeks ago. I'd say see how it acts.
