    I was told it was a packing peanut, so I assume it is a RIR roo, but....

    Here is a pic of him hanging out in the baby brooder. 20 weeks? The comb is still kinda small-

    I can find another pic if you all need one [​IMG]

    Last week--hanging with his peep---you can see the comb

    Thank you everyone! My husband ALWAYS pics the roo chicks as his "favorite"---"RED" was no exception. He will be delighted to hear Red is really a Roja!

    (spanglish rocks!)

    Thanks! I actually bought 3 SS chicks from a lady, who then tossed in a fourth one and the packing peanut in for free... Long story short, a dog attack late &shock/illness later-- Roja is my only survivor. I am happy to find out I didn't buy yet another roo [​IMG]
