    Hi Im new to BYC thougth someone might be able to help me. My wife bought me some meaties from the farm and fleet store and now that they are getting bigger I have 2 out of 10 that are much smaller than the rest have less of an appetite and have some black coming in on tails and wings they even have black spots on their backs. If anyone could tell me what they think they might be please help. Sorry about the pictures camera batteries were dying so i was in a hurry.

    thanks

    Those are Delaware Roos you will really enjoy them.They are a real good meat bird but also make great roosters for cross breeding for eggs and meat..fantastic laying breed as well.

    Thank you very much for leading me in the right direction. I belive I have a roo and hen but i didnt get a good pic of her so i didnt load it up but "she" has a much smaller comb and tail is a bit wider and shorter. Time will only tell what they really are. Thanks again
