a black bantam cochin in the 8 week age range? I keep looking at my youngster, hoping..... it's not a roo. I just am hoping that it is a mutant female with a larger comb.......doh. I don't have anywhere to put an extra bantam roo, and no one around here seems to want them. there are free bantam roos listed everywhere !!. Would hackle feathers be apparent at this age? No efforts of trying to crow yet. sigh. I know, it's a roo...... now how to find it a home.
