    His name is Elvis due to obvious sideburn reasons. He doesn't have a tail either so I think he is an Araucana or a mix.

    How can you tell what age your chicken is? We bought three from an auction recently, and I have no idea.

    Wish I could help you with his age. But, he sure is adorable, and I love the name Elvis, it fits him so well! [​IMG]

    He DOES look like an Elvis!!! Very cute bird. I don't know how to tell the age of a bird. If he was a horse, you could look at his teeth! LOL But I don't think looking into his beak will tell you much. [​IMG]

    Good luck with your new birds!

    You can't really age chickens by their physical appearance. Elvis does look healthy, though, and that's what counts. What kind of crow does he have?

    A loud and obnoxious one, but I think that is how they all sound. [​IMG]

    I had a Polish Crested rooster for a while that I called Elvis Poultry. It's a great name for a chicken.

    He's probably an auracana mix like you said. The comb looks to be indicative of something else, but I couldn't say what.
