    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! [​IMG]

    How old is it, and can we get a close up of face/neck feathers, and a top view please ?

    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.

    At 15 weeks I would say you have a pretty pullet.

    [​IMG] 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. [​IMG]
