    I have tried to get a picture of him stood normal, and not strutting but thats all he does 24/7 lol.

    Thankyou for all your help, and just wanted to update you all on how he turned out, I am not sure he will get any bigger, apart from maybe his snood??

    That is definitely a Harold! Sometimes it just takes time for the birds to mature,

    When he is not showing off he still looks rather lady like, thats probably why he spends all his time strutting, to make himself look more butch [​IMG]

    Ah, maybe he was just born in the wrong decade. Androgyny was very big in the '80's -- Boy George, Michael Jackson, Duran Duran.[​IMG]

    What breed is he -- he looks alot like my toms -- they're a cross between Royal Palms and Calico Sweetgrass?

    [​IMG] I agree with this statement... [​IMG]

    Well he is suppose to be a royal palm, but with that said the man I brought him from sold me some Polish chicks, and hatching eggs, which turned out to be 1 frazzle which later died, and a Polish X Cochin.. also the eggs I brought for incubating, turned out also to be polish X Cochin... so it has left me wondering whether he is pure RP, as he has some brown in small places....
