    rooster is a 1 year old​
     
  2. He's nice and I hate to disappoint you but he's yard quality. He's got nice gold coloring but see the white splotching? Not good. Also, he looks kind of small. Overall a very nice boy for your yard.

    Are you sure it's a roo, it looks like a hen to me [​IMG]
     
  5. I made the same mistake, looked like a hen except his face, well turns out the person chicken who was a roo who i thought was a hen, well he had been crowing for a couple weeks...

    look at that face and hackle feathers, its a boy, but i guess it doesnt have saddle feathers or sickle feathers...

    ya are you sure its a roo?

    sorry he just has NO saddle feathers and not a single sickle feather, his head is the most rooster part of him
