    What is he? He has a rose comb. He and the hen below came with four black Australorps that I bought at the feed store. They all looks the same when I got them as chicks.

    This is him with a head shot. Smile unnamed roo!

    They look like silver laced wyandottes. I may be wrong however, but that is what they look like the most.

    I told my husband this would work.

    By the way, he just started crowing this morning and now we need to decide between him and my Golden Wyandotte rooster.

    He looks more like a silver pencilled wyandotte and she looks more like a silver laced wyandotte.

    Decide between the two roosters, not between my hubby and a roo.[​IMG]

    Hubby doesn't crow either.

    I agree with Flyingmonkey I think the roo is a silver penciled wyandotte.
