I'm starting to wonder if I have yet another roo. She seems to look a little different then the others. Her tail is longer and stands straight up and her beak seems a little shorter. She's also a little smaller than the others. What do you think?

Thank you!

Hard to tell, but it appears that it has pointy neck (hackle) fethers and it looks like the tail feathers are curling (correct me if I am wrong).....If that is the case it is Roo.....however the comb is not as bright red as I am use to seeing.
I am new to this, but I think it is a hen. She looks to be about the same age as my leghorns that were born early April. My roos started getting their combs at about 6 weeks, even before they were fully feathered.
I'm so glad to see that most of you think it's a Judy not a Rudy. hehe I was sure hoping that she was a girl...I couldn't bare the thought of having to get rid of a third...ugh.

Seems kind of odd that I never see any Delawares and Jersey Giants for sale in my area.

Thank you all so much!!! It's nice to have some experienced people to ask.
