    This guy was dumped at our neighbors & I'm on my way to pick him up. Any idea what he may be?[​IMG]

    He's pretty big (although I've not had a rooster before) & docile until he's ticked off. He's in the barn testing out the repairs to the chicken stall, I sure hope he makes it through the night.

    x 3. You mentioned you hoped he'd make it through the night - does he look/act sickly??
