    Are those the same age? If they are, I'd say the one on the right is a roo! He's HUGE! Don't know what breed - someone else will have to tell you that one.

    Quote:Just to make sure I understand.....the bird on the left is the one generally agreed on as a rir, and the bird on the right is a freedom ranger, and they're the same age and raised together? Man, I'ma get me some of those FR's some spring [​IMG]
