    he did come with a name. Ellwood. So we call him Ellwood Chickenwood. Also, if you could estimate an age. He does crow, but kinda sounds hoarse. Kinda like a chickenduck. LOL

    Very pretty Rooster...
    He might be around two years of age. Looks like a Buff Orpington to me.[​IMG]

    My guess is he is under a year old but in order to make a good judgement, I would need to see the spurs.
