    Well, here I am in a quandary, both of these birds are 12 weeks old: bird 1 was sold to a gal as an excess poult, she got it home and her roo instantly took beating it up, while letting the other 2 girls she took go easy. :-/
    She asked to bring "him" back, I of course said yes... but I am dubious, I see no comb or wattle reddening... but he deffinitely looks different.
    So now I am eyeing out other BA as being suspect...
    What do you guys think?

    Bird "A" , the one who got abused by the older roo:

    Bird "B", now suspect...
