    Looks like a roo to me but his pea comb is tiny legs are long but in between in width, not as thick as my known roos but thicker than some of the hens the same age It is an EE mixed with who knows what, maybe RIR. pretty chocolate color.

    Here is a hatch mate roo with a developed pea comb. They look a lot alike other wise

    Is it unusual for comb and wattles to develop this late??? Thank you for your help !!!

    Looks almost like someone crossed malays with ees. Thats where them legs vould be from. Also the heads remind me of the hatchery malays I use to have.

    [​IMG] Ahh Dark Cornish is much better. They probably wouldn't breed true but I can live with that. Need to build a new pen though seems the 12 week old roo above is already trying to mate with my pretty little cochin bantam. Hes not even crowing yet.
    Thank you all for your help!!
