    [​IMG] I'm going to say a cockerel but I'm not sure. His age is about 4 weeks and he is very dominant over my red rangers. He's small and feathers aren't as fast growing as my red rangers. I'm thinking he's a roo. They are all at least 4 weeks old. Thank you

    Thank you chicken girl1. The legs do have a greenish tint. His little yellow fuzz is falling off and he has pure white feathers replacing them. He's quite beautiful and does not mind being held too much. He reminded me of a canary when he was smaller. He has little nubs coming out on the legs. I'm thinking Spurs?

    Could be a White Jersey Giant. It's normal for Red Rangers to grow faster than other breeds, they are a meat breed after all. They are meant to grow fast.
