    I have a BLRW that is about 6 months now and out of 4 I have one roo that is very much a roo, crowing and the tail feathers are long and green. I have another that is close to same size but has a single comb and tail feathers like a hen but the comb is large and the wattles are large as well. I have never heard this one crow but I have two roosters in the bunch right now that are so maybe thats holding this one back? I need to get some pictures up asap and show you. Im working tonight but will post some pictures when I can tomorrow. I can usually tell when I have a roo in the bunch but this time its wicked hard to tell.

    This is a pic of the chicken when it was a little younger
