    LOL, you said what I was thinking.

    A full body shot would give the best chance to help you out.

    Not positive on the age. I've had it a month and have had people say roo and others say pullett. It's comb and wattles turn pink to red.

    It's still relatively young. I see it's getting rid of the down in the face, so under 12 weeks for sure, but above 7.. I'm going with roo, because it wouldn't have saddle feathers at this age anyway.
