    It won't let me upload a picture. I have never had an issue before. I have a 2 month old white black tailed Japanese bantam. It is getting a comb already. Roo?

    I have two of those and both are female. If it is a roo it will have 'ragged' tail feathers. A picture would be wonderful but I don't think it should matter too much; our Japanese Roos have never crowed! They have trouble mounting so it would be very hard for them to mate. Maybe try uploading a picture tomorrow?

    That's an awful lot of comb for a 2 month old White Black Tailed Japanese bantam. I think you have a rooster.

    At 2 months old, that is a rooster.
