    I recieved this beautiful Roo from a lady on Craigs List. He is a younger roo... but she didn't know his age. She described him as a red color...and didn't know the breed. I think he is a Buff Orpington, his color is absolutely beautiful. What do you think?

    Buff Orpington indeed.

    eta - You might want to check his comb. [​IMG] It looks to have some sort of defect/problem

    Thanks!
    His comb is a bit messed up from the really cold weather..they were in an open air pen.
    He has already showed me what he's made of. We had a hawk land in the run late in the afternoon, and he alerted the girls, and then went on patrol making
    all kinds of alarm noises... we didn't lose a single bird. We lost a hen about 7 wks ago to a hawk, this darn hawk went away hungry today ! I have named him Booyon
    (like in gold bullion) today... he was worth his weight in gold ...fer sure !!
