    This bird is a red and egger mix I think it's a roo from his green tail and wing feathers what do y'all think. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Looks like one to me. Think you could get a good picture of his face? Id be able to tell better by taking a look at that comb

    He's about 10 -12 weeks old I was pretty sure he was a roo just wanted some opinions on him. I've tried and tried to give him away but nobody wants him and my big rooster (his daddy) has started fighting with him and another one I had so tomorrow I gotta dispatch him after work. I've been trying to give him away for 2 weeks but nobody wants him I'm out of options.

    Yep, that's a cockerel.

    I can't give away little EE or mixed breed males, either. So, we eat a lot of chicken [​IMG]

    Sorry to hear that. It happens though, my game hen last year's hatched ten Cockrells and three hens. We had some great chicken soup that year ;)
