    This bird is now 10.5 weeks old and has these really gorgeous iridescent tail feathers.... is this most likely a roo? If it is, I will have to find him a new home... [​IMG]

    Thanks, that is what I thought. Hmmm, now what to do.... I would love to keep him, but my husband isn't thrilled about the crowing.
