    Ok, bad pics...
    Um, bird is supposed to be 7mos old.
    Neck ruffles and a few shiny feathers ... pretty bland colors, almost no comb, and no spurs??
    Supposed to be an americana or EE.
    I'm guessing Roo, but the lack of noise and spurs confuses me. [​IMG]

    Ha, I was looking at the pictures, thinking how the heck did that chicken get photographed inside a 55-gallon drum? I knew it wasn't really a drum, the curves are too wide, but that was the first thing that occurred to me. Horse trailer, the perfect answer!

    Anyway, he sure looks like a roo with those pointy hackle feathers. Now Araucaunas, as opposed to Amers and EEs, are supposed to be rumpless, I think...no long tail feathers. Maybe his Araucauna background is just showing a lot?

    I can't explain the crow and spur issue though, maybe somebody else knows more.

    He has tail feathers.

    He looks to be an EE (Easter Egger) cockerel.

    Thanks Everyone!

    I guess he's just alot younger than I was told...
    Hopefully I'll be able to find him a good home soon, or at least before he 'gets of age'.... I really don't want issues between the Roo's (afraid Tony will protect his girls) and I'm not really set up here for more than 1 Roo.
    Unless someone has suggestions?
    Thanks again all!
    I think he's gonna be stunning when he finishes growing...kinda at the geeky stage now it seems.
