    Not sure if it is a he or a she? Any guess. We got it on April 26th, so just a little over 4 weeks old. Any good guesses?

    Does this show the tail? It doesn't have much of a tail.

    If the tail is barred, it is a roo. The comb looks awfully big to me. Since I can't see the tail, I'd say roo based on the comb.

    I say roo, because he has a barred 'cape'. That is a feature often seen on male Delawares.

    I would say roo based on the markings and the comb.
