    HE/SHE is about 10 or 11 weeks old RiR, Hasn't crowed or even tried to. In the pictures the comb and wattles look red but the color is actually deep orange. Also has green feathers coming in on its tail.

    Some more Pictures for you to decide

    Absolutely a roo! I have one that is about 12 weeks and they look just alike! Sorry if you didn't want a roo, but that is what you have. I didn't want one either, but now that I have one, I am glad! I want more chicks and I don't want the hassle/expense of an incubator and having to tend tiny babies again. I will let the hens do the work while I get to spoil them like any good grandmother! I have an 8x8 coop in progress (needs wire over the vent holes, pop door cut, paint, linoleum, and the run to be attached) and I plan on sectioning off an area for broody hens and new babies. Haven't even got my first egg yet and I'm already counting on chicks![​IMG]

    With that huge red comb and waddle?? That is a roo if ever I saw one. Sorry. Give him a chance. I raised an accidental roo and now I just love him. He's such a character.
