    This is going to make me cry to get rid of this SHIM! So I just wanted to post again to make sure everyone was positive it was a Roo the barred rock is the one i'm wondering about.

    He looks like a Roo to me but also looks like you have a EE Roo in the background as well.

    I wouldnt get rid of any until you are absolutely positive and hear a crow.

    I'm not sure. I've raised Barred Rocks (still have 1 hen), and I don't think I'd feel sure at this point myself.
    It's hard to think about having to get rid of one you love. Best wishes!

    I had a BR roo that I got rid of and the comb was much bigger with big waddles. How old is this bird?

    My father-in-law has some 17 week old barred rock hens. Three of his 5 hens have waddles that big but your barred rock's comb is about 1/3 bigger then any of his barred rocks combs. I'd wait until you hear a crow to know for sure.
