    [​IMG] now I dont see wattles..LOL but the leg size still screams roo to me... please keep us updated..I would think its comb would be alot more colored in with pink or red if it were a roo but maybe a late bloomer?

    I say cockerel. A pullet would have already had all of her wing bow feathers in. Your little guy still shows some bare patches.
