    What is that green on there head? If that's natural color then I don't know, but other than that, I'd say RIR or production red.

    I think they use the green ink dots for roosters.

    Yes I asked them to mark the roosters just in case they were of the same breed as my hens.. but they weren't ...(darn it)

    cute but have to go... I wonder if anyone in my area is willing to trade baby roo for baby roo [​IMG]
