    Found a guy who had some chickens for sale on craigslist,just wanted to check on what kind they were.

    Bought two hens.He said they were Auracana's but I thought those were rumpless.Not an expert so I was wonderin what your thoughts were.

    Well,no roo yet.Man is he fast.It's his first night here and looks like he's spendin it outside.I didn't know the little sucker could fly so well.My RIR kinda just jump high and fall to the ground slow with their wings flappin...

    I wonder if he'll find his way back?If not I guess I'm gonna have a wild roo.:eek:

    Hopefully he's a lady's man and comes back...[​IMG]
