    Looks like another rooster doesn't like him much by the looks of his pecked off tail. Yes speckled sussex roo.

    Oh yes! The tail...a silkie rooster tore them out. I inherited the rooster from a friend and thats her story! But he's super handsome and I cant wait for the tail feathers to come back. Hope my neighbors can tolerate his crowing...i guess we will see. [​IMG]
