Yes this is fun! Love it!
Thanks for the pictures, everyone!
I like this thread! I'm going to learn a lot about identifying breeds in here. In terms of roo/hen, are there breeds that you can't recognize the difference as adults?
Yes. Silkies, Campine, just to name a few... It is possiblpossible, but difficult, because both genders feather similarly...
Roo or hen? Look closely at the feathers...
Here's an example:
Yep, he's a rooster. His name is Mel , after Mel Gibson.
Langshan is a very good guess. They have straight combs, white skin and feathered legs, and come in this blue color. But, they're a leggier bird with a more upright stance. This guy is a Marans.
Thanks for the info! Now, that one screams roo to me. Is it?
Yes. GCs are hen feathered (roos too)
I went for the enormous comb and stance
