    I have a rooster that I haven't been able to identify. He's a bantam, with feathered legs and feet. He's very sweet and trys so hard to be 'manly', but he is the most girly looking chicken I have. He makes all kinds of noise at the roving cats to protect his girls, waits at the bottom of the ladder every night until every single hen is inside before he goes in. And when ever he finds food, or I feed them, he starts "gluk, gluking" and picks up the food and throws it back down until the hens come over and eat it. He's telling them, "here's food! here's food!". He tries to herd them around (there's only 4 hens), and one follows his every footstep, two just ignore him, and my 'girl' (black rosecomb banty I've had for years) either ignores him or beats him up. He always loses and walks away with a funny attitude like he hopes no one else noticed the scuffle.

    The white one is the rooster.


    By the way, the brown chicken is a golden sebright hen (with her head and comb bitten off), but I had 4 of them and I LOVED them! They are calm, sweet and very beautiful!

    He looks like a Cochin to me. Splash, maybe? We have Golden Sebrights, too (2 hens) and we love them, too. They're very sweet and docile.
