Does anyone know which breed this is and if looks like a cockerel or not?

    I forgot what I ordered and have no idea which breed this is and why is the comb so wide?[​IMG]

    Oh no!!! Please tell me you're joking. Do you know if they are typically mean when they get older? I had to get rid of my last rooster (Buff Orpington) because he got really mean close to a year old.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news! But at least they are usually pretty nice guys. I've never had a mean one. I actually have 3 blue laced red wyandotte roosters at the moment. Oddly enough, the meanest rooster I've ever had was also a buff orpington..

    Thanks for your reply. Now I have to decide whether or not to keep him and see how he turns out. [​IMG]

    I think my rooster is a Rhode island red, but I'm not sure. Does anybody know what he is for sure?
