    Looks like a young roo to me I'm afraid. This is maybe why you found him as a stray.

    Ahh darn! I was afraid of that [​IMG] We can't have roosters where we live so I was trying to be hopeful. I'll have to find this guy a new home. Any guesses on age?

    Maybe about 12 weeks, keep it a bit longer to see if it crows first. That will be your absolute answer then. While it's not crowing they can't say you have a roo :D

    Good plan!! I'd hate to see him go, he's so easy to handle and super friendly so fingers crossed for a miracle that he turns out to be a she or just doesn't crow much haha

    You can get no crow collers ;)

    I hope I'm wrong with my guess :fl
