    is this the first BR roo with dark legs? Its 12 weeks now but has always had color on the legs and I thought roos always were yellow only.... the comb and waddles look like some of the other hens I have seen around here. I guess I will know for sure in a month or two right?

    I would say it's a hen. Looks a lot like my Squiggles did.

    See... she has more yellow legs and the more white color of the BR roosters. But she was a hen for sure.
