    I have a sizzle "hen" that could be a roo, but it doesn't have wattles. Do all roosters have wattles?

    Hens have wattles too. ( except Ameracauna and maybe something else) [​IMG]

    Post a pic and we can probably tell you.

    All birds with beards have no/reduced wattles. Sumatras and Chanteclers don't have large wattles ethier

    and you can't tell me it was from his non-existant Ameraucana ancestors either. [​IMG] Nor does he have a beard or muffs.

    White Malay, oriental gamefowl.

    This guy doesn't have them either:

    He is a varied mix of gamefowl breeds.
