I suspect this is a roo- What breed please?
You can't tell from this pic but it's pretty small- in this pic maybe 12-16 weeks old and I guess maybe a bantam. It's sort of a rescue and is dwarfed by my Isa browns and black Australorp. It's shy but curious and gets bullied by the other chooks so I'm sleeping them separately. If it does end up being a roo I might try caponizing as I've grown quite fond of it. The tail has only just started to look like this in the last few days and i heard it vocalising at 6am- not quite a crow but it could be?
Black Dutch maybe?
I've been thinking, not really sure about a Dutch. What if it's a Bantam Minorca- but a hen?? I'm a bit of a newbie so I can't really tell.
Black Dutch Bantam pullet?
The body type isn't right for a Dutch Bantam. However, I suppose it could be a hatchery-quality Black Dutch Bantam. The only other thing I can think of is that it is a Black Minorca Bantam.
Oh, and it does look like a cockerel.
Dutch are not really in Australia - this one was found in someone's backyard so I was expecting some ordinary breed! Really a cock? When do the earlobes get big?
Oooops! Should have looked at your location. I know nothing about what chickens there are in Australia that aren't here as well or vice versa.
