    I'm goning to guess roo with that massive comb, but a good indicator is the saddle/back area, as the feathers there grow pointier and longer then in hens. Try looking there, or posting a picture of it.

    Okay, I will try to get a better pic of him/her. I have a few others that are possibly roos, but their combs aren't near the sizes of these two and they are all the same size, but I am still not sure on their breeds.​

    That white one looks like it could be a white sultan mix, they have top hats, and V shaped combs. They also have a five toe mutation, yours might too. That black one is also some type of crested mix, could be the same father, different mother = diff color.

    All 3 of our white ones have that crest. Actually the blacks ones do to, not all but some.

    One of our white ones has just a bit of a comb, here she is, at least I hope she is a she. [​IMG]

    Some in the background and the black ones look a bit like my Polish chicks. I say they may be a Polish cross?? And the second one definately looks like a roo to me.
