  2. Thats a rooster.
    The comb says it.
    The saddle feathers( feather by the tail) are long, shiny and pointy which says roo
    The tail feathers are soft and curly
    And hes shiny all over.

    Sorry but hes a rooster, and probably bred as a chick to know who was a hen and who was a roo (like for example, the hens are black as chicks and roosters white)

  3. Hes VERY pretty though, has a crele like coloring, I love it.


    OOoh, sex-link! Hes a SEX-LINK! (just came to my mind) I'd have to guess hes a barred rock rooster bred with a hen of a different color, thus creating a sexlink, females born black and roos white

    It's a mixed breed rooster. One parent had barring, but he's just a mix.

    Looks similar to Euskal Oiloa.. But they are really rare. Probably a different mix rooster.

    It is a Euskol Oiloa, but his and the rest of the flocks colors are all over the place.
