    I bought a few pullets at tsc this spring but this looks like a roo although he has not started to crow yet what do you think he is about 4-5m old[​IMG]

    I can't see the hackle/sickle feathers, but he sure stands like a ROO! I wouldn't be surprised at all by a cockadoodledoooooo!

    I know that had me stumped too but the other hens do not have any comb or wattles at all so I was also a bit unsure.This ones legs are much thicker too

    if it is the same age as the other one in the pic, it REALLY looks like a roo. it may be too young but I would think the tail feathers would be or get longer.
