    I posted some pics of my baby ee little bit ago and you all suspected this one may be a roo. Well.... he/she has gotten some neck feathers and comb darkened a hair. Perhaps I am in denial but hoping he is a she but...are those neck feathers cackle feathers!? They are thinner and longer than rest of feathers. What about those tail feathers? And the comb is not red but it did darken! Thoughts?

    I'll venture a guess, only due to the pointy feathering..ROO.

    The comb looks maybe like it is developing 3 rows? If so I would say roo. Good looking boy

    That is a mighty fine looking little roo. Looks about the same age as mine.

    The bird's too young for hackle or saddle feathers, those don't come in until around 3 months, give or take. But the triple row pea comb and flashy coloring both say male, sorry.
