    here is a pic of one of the 'hens' we got, ahem...
    who started crowing right after...
    sigh...
    they are not friendly, and really fight each other...
    any thoughts on what he is?
    oh, the frizzle is a roo too...

    The frizzle came from my friend, the three white and black roos came from her mother in law...

    Any feathers on the legs? Could have some Columbian or Light Brahma in them... or Delaware.

    I had a Delaware roo that had a pea comb! He was the noisiest crower on the planet, seriously. Drove DW bonkers. Was rehomed.

    here is another pic from the following spring, when they were fully mature... showing legs...
    what is a pea comb?
    oh, and they crow day and night...
    two of the three were rehomed as they also fought and nearly killed one... argh...
