    Here is a pic of what I thought was a hen. He/she got mixed up in a group of silkies and was given to me, so I have no idea what it is. Columbian something or other? Anyhow, this little poop started crowing all of a sudden. It fights with my Silkie roo and my Silkie hen. Any ideas? IMG_6404.JPG

    That a light Brahma rooster, though I should ask how old is it?

    I second the light Brahma cockerel. Is it a bantam or large fowl?

    It's a banty. The hens I got at the same age just started laying this week.
