    This fella will be going to his new home soon. Turned out our two hens decided to sprout tail feathers and turn in to full on roosters last month. [​IMG] Don't really have a need for two so he must go. I just wanted to kind of get an idea what kind he may be to list him for potential new owners.

    I didn't think Dellies had red in them. I would advertize him as a barnyard cross of dubious heritage. [​IMG]

    I don't know all the lingo, but are you all referring to the red tones on his feathers? Because that's not his usual color. They had a scuffle yesterday (another reason he is leaving) and as you can see, we've had TONS of rain. That's mostly red clay (aka our dirt [​IMG] )on him.


    Thanks for the info everyone!!!!
