    Hope this is the correct section to post this..........

    I've had this roo for two months now.....first month he was seperated from the rest of the flock (just in case of anything at all).

    The second month he went in with all the rest. Uneventful two months and He looks the same now as he did then.........
    (??? frostbite on the comb and white ??? whatever that is near the ears??)

    Now as I look at him more and more, I am wondering if this white area above his waddles is a bad thing or if the (what I thought was frost bite) is like old...Avaian pox???? Harmful??? [​IMG]

    I also have no clue what breed he is??? Only because his tail feathers are all messed up :eek: and due to my inexperience [​IMG] I can't tell what it should be like???
    B.T.W. can you also tell by the pics how old he looks???

    What do you think? Healthy / normal??? [​IMG] Or should I go run out to the coop and evict him immediately??? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Can't remember the name of the breed, but those are his earlobes. He lookes perfectly healthy and very, very, handsome. No need to worry.

    I want to say Blue Andalusion, but just a guess. They say white earlobes means white eggs.

    He looks like a breed that has white on their face by the ears. I'm sure someone can give the name of his breed.
