    Sorry the picture is fuzzy, he/she does not like being held. I am not almost certain that its a roo but interested to see what you guys think. His crown is triple the size of the hens and his waddles are now coming in and they are all turning red.

    Not 100% sure. Probably a TSC barnyard mix.

    Well... With mixed breed birds its harder to tell based on physical characteristics like that. Even with hatchery birds and stock that isn't maintained for certain characteristics and even with pure birds its tough. This year I had some young mixed birds that are excellent and their combs varied from nearly inverted to hanging over, all the same stock and same age and all pullets ;) but if its a production red which is kind of what it looks like to me I call too ;)
