    I got some banded hens at Atwoods and one has started looking like a roo. I think it is from Ideal Hatchery and judging by their catalog I'd say I got some black Minorcas. He looks a lot like the other banded pullets, just a bigger comb and waddles. All have white cheeks like Leghorns, but I don't see black Leghorns at Ideal. Does this look like a Minorca roo? Thanks

    It looks like a Black Minorca. Not sure on gender... How old is s/he?


    Quote:Have you tried looking on Craigslist? There's often a few on there. If there's not, you can place a "wanted" ad. I have some Ameraucana roosters for sale, but I doubt you're willing to drive to SE Missouri for a rooster...

    I know it is over 6 weeks, but not sure exactly how old. This one just has such a larger comb than its mates that I'd bet roo. I appreciate the responses. I'll try to post a comparison pic tomorrow.
