    Here are a couple pics of my roo's, compared to my RIR Roosters (which are younger) they are small, and full grown, I am going to be thinning my flock and 2 of these white roos have got to go.... but would like to tell the next owner what they are.

    Thanks for everyone's replies, I have got to rehome 2 maybe 3 of these guys, just want to make sure they go to a good home. Anyone have any ideas of the best way to rehome them? I know I could put them on craigslist, I just don't want them to be table food, I couldn't bear it.

    actually i don't think they're white leghorns!
    i did some research and white leghorns have way bigger combs so big the plop to one side! but leghorns also don't have those long tails im guessing its a mix breed of something like a white leghorn and a yokahoma.

    I was thinking Leghorn because I have seen Leghorn roos that have upright combs and long tails.

    you might be right cat water but i don't think I've ever seen White leghorns with those feathers hanging down by their sides like a yokahoma.

    They're Leghorns. The females will have lopped combs but the males shouldn't.
