    I got this little one about 12 weeks ago (they were supposed to be 14 weeks old then, but I think they were more like 8 weeks). I am guessing it to be around 19-21 weeks old now. I am suspicious that this is a roo. What do you think?

    His tail feathers point straight up, and the (saddle?) feathers are curling downward. He has a "hump neck" (I've nicknamed it Quasimodo). I am becoming more and more convinced that it is a rooster, but my hubby doesn't think so. I haven't had any crowing yet or any other definitively roo behavior exhibited at this point....

    OH DEAR is that a SLW. because I have an 8 week old and her waddles and combs are much bigger and redder. so I'm going to say your is a girl and I've got the boy, not what I wanted.
