    Acts a little different. May be a little older. Has a little more comb and waddle than the sisters shown. Doesn't crow after 4 to 4 1/2 months.

    Dr. Doorlock,
    I'm sorry but even clicking on it I'm still not able to see him/her well enough to tell. Need a closer look.
    By the way, why is a roo dreaded? Can you not have them where you live?
    My roo is the most valuable member of my flock. [​IMG]

    Quote:I have to agree. After almost 6 months without a roo, I can't WAIT for my new one to arrive on the 30th. I have already named him!
    But I can understand if you are living in an area that forbids the crowing of a roo.

    More opinions, PLEASE. I'm living in a county where you are allowed TWO HENS! And I have EIGHT unless this one is a Tattle-Tail Rooster. One "Cock-a-Doodle-Doooo and I could have 2 hens and 6 FRYERS! Not to mention a possible fine. I'm really just concerned that a rooster in the bunch could cause a neighbor to complain.

    Try this pic.
