Ok I googled mottled java roosters and I can see where he could look like that one day when he outgrows his lanky teen stage.  He is so awkward right now, and I have no idea what happened to his tail.  We had two of these and my friend son killed the other one as a chick :rantand it would have probably been a hen then we could have had a pair!  But I guess I'll never know.... :hit Thanks for the info!!

Yea we thought we had the hens but I think the biggest is a rooster. 2/3 have no tail feathers yet and they are almost 6 months old.
