    I just got two more aussie chicks, the little roo has a blue/purple sheen instead of the green and I just noticed he has a rose comb... As soon as I get the bugger caught again (hes off scratching by the horses) I will get a picture. Until then, heres a good description...

    Body of a cornish, crows blue sheen, thick long legs, bright red ROSE comb, he's much smaller body wise than my aussie roo was at that age... About 10 weeks old. Definitely a something though, because the lady got him from a hatchery though didn't say which. He was traded for two sussex roos that she wanted for meat birds.

    any ideas? I'm trying to her the escapees back into the coop.

    Sure he's not a wyandotte? What color are his legs?

    I am thinking he is, now that it's been said. He has the same body type as my SLW cockerals around his age, only not as colorful. His legs are an off yellow with some black, like theirs. I just wasn't sure there was black wyandottes. >< guess I could google it.
