    This is by far the largest of my flock. It's feathering looks like a hen, but Waddles and comb look like a Roo. No crowing, but definitely dominate.

    Any help would be appreciated.[​IMG]

    Does not seem to have any saddle feather, My two roos the same age have them, but they are barred rocks, I don't know if that makes a difference,

    Thanks, That is what I was hoping for because I already have two roos in that bunch.

    You're welcome! I know the feeling of too many roos and not wishing for more. [​IMG]
