    If anyone could help me with any information on Rodgers, I would really appreciate it! Background is that I was leaving a pet and farm store and they had 4 roosters that had to be gone that same day! I took all of them in hopes of finding homes, and ended up keeping one. He is officially part of the family! It's been quite an experience for us, trying to learn everything about chickens. Considering Rodgers seems very healthy, friendly and happy, I guess we're doing something right! [​IMG]

    I believe he is a Dominique Rooster, but the breed and gender could possibly be wrong. And I think he is 8 wks old...? But he grew so fast, that I am not sure. He does not have any spurs and has a single comb.

    I believe that Dominiques have rose combs. (altho old timers call ANYTHING black and white Domineckers which is a nick name for Dominiques as far as I know.) I would guess barred rock or another another black and white breed whose name is escaping me... Starts with a C I think... lol

    Oh, he is a handsome one! Look at those big ol' feet and his pretty red comb! My first instinct was Barred Rock as well. Gotta get him some single ladies!

    He looks very regal! I'm guessing barred rock, too.
