    Yeah that one's much better it's a little early for a red comb and do you have any others you can personally compare it to? In my opinion that is a young roo, Most pullets don't get a red comb until they're older, and the feathers on his neck look like pointy generally a sign it's a roo. I hope I'm wrong unless you wanted a roo

    I'm sorry I think they're both roos. I wish I had better news to give you. maybe someone else can come along and prove me wrong. Also I'm across the atlantic so I'm a bit sleepy I hope I'm wrong.[​IMG]
