    Good afternoon!
    My hubby and I have had backyard chickens for about 2 years. When adding to our flock, we always order day old hens. Well if my observations are correct, I believe a Roo slipped through... lol The feathers, tail and wing, are different from my other 3 australorps.
    What do yall think?

    I'm glad you were able to get the pics posted. I agree with StarMeKritten; you have a cockerel.
