    I've got him/her as a day old chick, very small and very light colored. She/he is now a week old, and still very tiny compared to the other same age chicks.
    I understood based on internet research that the light colored are mostly roos, but according to the breeder who sold them as straight run can be hens(?), too.
    We have another GCM that I think is 100% roo (imho), so we surely can't keep them both (even one is going to make our neighbors "happy"), so I would like to give him, if a roo, away before it becomes too much attached to the kids..
    Thanks in advance!

    It is too young to determine gender. I'd post more photos when she/he is at least 4 weeks old.
