    I was afraid of that. I guess my family will have fresh from the lawn chicken dinner when he gets bigger, unless I can find someone here who wants him. So far that isn't looking good, I have two people I work with that have chickens and they don't want/need another rooster.

    the weird thing about this chicken is the legs are the same color as all my hens and look like the pictures that everyone says hens should look like. The dark legs instead of yellow. so I guess I'll feed him/her till I'll here it crow or lay an egg lol.[​IMG]

    All Barred Rocks, whether pullets or cockerels, have the same leg color since it's considered a breed trait. [​IMG] I'm SOOOOOOO sorry to hear that [​IMG].....hope you're able to find a home for him. [​IMG] Maybe you could try posting something in the Buy ~ Sell ~ Trade section?

    OH see I was told the roos would have lighter legs, I guess I was misinformed. Thanks for that.

    It looks like a cockerel...but could be an early blooming pullet. I don't see any wattles.
