    I'd love to help. Do you think you could get a picture of the comb?
    Thanks!

    How old it it?
    A full body profile shot would help, including legs.

    At this point I'm leaning toward roo. I see darker shading on the wing, and some of those hackle feathers look kinda pointy. Laced feathers are always harder for me to tell, thought, as the color seems to emphasize the length.

    I think cockerel also. The few darker feathers poking out on the wings/back is what tips me off.
