    This Barred Rock was purchased as a hen about 3-4 months ago, but now I have my doubts. His comb seems to be growing exponentially the last month or so and I thought I caught him mounting one of the other hens.

    This is "Emu", a barred-rock rooster. He has 2 dominiques and one black astrolorp in his harem. He is 6 months old.
