    Check out this Polish - It is a breeder accident that I got for free. I thought it was a girl, but noticed today that it looks like spurs are growing (1/4 inch long). Taking another look, the saddle feathers do look like a roo. What do you think? He lives with my Silkie and Cochin Bantams. They all get along. Even if it is a roo, I think I will keep as long as it gets along.

    Thanks everyone.

    Even though he is a Roo, he is staying as long as he continues to get along with his house mates. He is in the eye candy pen anyway. Silkies, Cochin Bantams and him.

    I have the Barn flock, Ameracauna, Geese, Ducks, Guineas

    Then there is the laying house: 14 Standard Hens - 1 White Leghorn, 1 Brown Leghorn, 2 Wheaten Ameracauna, 2 RIR, 2 Black Jersey Giants, 2 Feather Legged Cuckoo Maran, 2 Golden Star Pullets, 1 Blue Laced Red Wyandotte, 1 Blue Jersey Giant. Plus 7 mutts.

    No doubt on his gender....check out that long curling tail feather and the saddle feathers. He's a handsome bugger!
