    Very hard to tell w/o seeing the whole body.

    A side photo would help, but in the meantime I'm thinking roo. Those neck feathers are awfully shiny, big comb and wattles, and just has a roo-ish look in the eyes. Would need more pictures to say for certain, but my bets are on roo.

    How old if 4 months plus it's a she, though it's face looks like a roo to me even if it's feathers look like a hens [​IMG] will need an accurate gage of age, side photos as others have said and perhaps describe behaviour within the flock?
