    This guy shows up in my yard and leaves at dusk... walking down our long drive. What breed is he and should I be watching to be sure he doesn't try and take some of my girls. I have a roo that ignores him unless he tries to breed then he takes off after him with gesto my roo makes three of this little fella but I think hes just a year old maybe. [​IMG]

    Looks like a New Hampshire Red or NHR mix to me.

    Lol that happened to me. At the time I didn't have a roo at all. Now I do! He has moved in. I don't know where he came from (I had an idea I thought, then I realized that a LOT of people around me had free-range chickens, so he could have come from anywhere).

    I'd just be careful of Marek's. My flock has it now because of me being dumb and buying chicks from a guy on craigslist. But any wandering chicken can introduce it to your flock, and then you have it forever.

    I would agree that he is a New Hampshire red. Pretty fella!
