    Okay, this chicken has been on here before and we came to the conclusion that it's a roo.
    After looking through some other threads, and looking online, I have my doubts.
    I think this chicken was supposed to be a Delaware, but am wondering if it could be a Columbian Rock?
    Also, I wanted to make sure it's a roo, since I'm going to need to find it a home soon if that's the case.

    It looks to me like it's a cross between the 2. It looks more like a Delaware to me, but it has that awful mess (for a Delaware, that's an awful mess [​IMG]) down its back. I think it looks like a girl, though.

    no idea on breed but i would say it is a spur less roo because of its comb

    definitly a roster, the comb is to red to be a pulet.

    That looks like what you get when you cross the two, to tell the truth. It's a rooster.
