    Depending on who your judge is, you likely should not show him at the fair. If he came out of the black sex link bin at the feed store, likely he's just a male that slipped by them.

    Sorry, but I wouldn't try to show him.

    Frist off i'm not convincent its a roo i had two welsummers that i thought for sure one was a roo because of the combs but they both turned out to be hens one just has a huge comb and the other ones comb stayed real small . so are you positive it a roo ? and the toe's could just be a freakie gean that slip through . so it could just be a black star hen that got some freakie geans mix up in her. and if its just a county fair just show it under all other large fowl if they offer that class . and good luck.

    Looks like a sex link but with the extra toes it means it probably has some Faverolles in there somewhere.

    That looks like some roosters that I had, got them at an auction. I rhink that they were part Copper Marans. Maybe that is what yours is, part Copper Marans.

    Quote:He is a Roo alright.. but the extra toe can be a genetic deformity, I had this happen in a Inbreed line of Brahmas...

    You got this rooster from TSC as a chick, right?
    If so I would say that the bird is from Mt. Healthy Hatchery, Now Mt. Healthy was selling some Australorp crosses to TSC and I would be willing to be that that is one of the Australorp crosses that TSC was selling.

    Now I also say that the the other breed in this cross was most likely a Dorking BUT the Dorking was not pure.
    If the Dorking was pure the leg color of its Male offspring would be White and not Greenish Yellow.
