    How old did you say it was in the pics? I was thinking cockerel originally but now I'm not sure.

    It is 2 1/2 months I already have a LB roo that is 3 1/2 months. "It" was suppose to be is pullet for my roo. They are both my favs and I wouldn't know which to give up?[​IMG]

    I started to think it was a roo because of the comb but my husband said its a roo because of the pointy back feathers. But I was hoping in a month or so it would show she is a pullet.

    I say pullet. Never heard about having rows on the comb...but doesn't seem pronounced enough for a chick that age to be a roo.

    I would guess that is a roo simply based on comparison with my LB girl at around the same age and even older. She is about 12wks in the first picture and around 16wks in the second.
