    It seems to be question night for me tonight.

    I totally thought this was a hen till last week, but then I saw him and white NN having a dust up and began to wonder. Then I saw posts here about pointed saddle feathers.

    These are pretty pointed right?

    That makes adult roo number 4 in the flock...

    do roos fight with hens? cause then white nn would be roo #5

    He's a very strange looking chicken with a big body, short neck and short legs

    The one in question is for sure a rooster, if you get a better pic of the NN we might be able to tell

    He's not crowing so far and is mostly keeping out of the two big roos way. My yard seems to be big enough to support at least two flocks. They completely ignore the little bantam roo.

    It's going to be really tough to decide which one is tamales and which one is soup. There are at least 8 roos in the 3 week old hatch AND there are 42 eggs in the bater.(I want about 70 layers)
