    Mottled Roo. He is almost white. Hard to believe he black with a few white specks on his chesst at 3 months. He is very typey. He keeps his comb beat up trying to spar through the fence

    What kind of mix is that blue hen, and also the mottled roo. They are both so beautiful. Also, the big black ones in the photo?
