    Depending on the age of your bird, it's looking a bit roo-ish with the tail feathers.

    Rooster, definitely. BRs are my thing.
     
  8. Thank all:

    I figured as much. This is the ONLY barred rock I have and wouldn't ya know it.

    Oh well, he has a home for life. I have a CLOSED flock now.
