I bought my first set of yard birds today. A family was liquidating all of them due to an illness in the family. I wasn't particular about picking them as I wanted to get 5 and get out of the neighborhood I was in. There was literally a 92 year old man running them down in a very large pen and catching them for me. I got my 5, paid them and took off. This one is obviously a much darker color. I am assuming its a much younger bird as it has small comb and waddles. My question, is it a dang rooster? They are all supposed to be RIR's. If it is indeed a cockerel, I will drive back up there tomorrow and see about exchanging it for a bonafide hen Its the darker bird in the front of the picture..
