    This is the chicken that I got for free with my turkeys. What is it? Also, don't laugh, is it a hen or a roo? I thought it was a hen but it is showing very aggressive tendencies, so I wonder if it might be a roo? Doesn't have spurs though. I got it in April, it was small but almost completely feathered. This is the bird that has trouble with it's legs.

    I dont know what it is, but it is a roo.

    The lack of the big tail and huge comb throws you off when you first glance at it.......... but the saddle (on each side of the tail starting at the back) feathers are long and pointy.

    Maybe a partridge rock roo? I'm not positive- but my partridge cochin roos have similar coloring.

    Thanks guys!

    It's a noisy bugger. I didn't realize that Roo's make the bock bock bock noise [​IMG]

    I realized I might have a rooster when he went up to my tom squatted down and flung his neck feathers out in an impressive display. It has also came at me twice now pecking at me. He better get over that quick! (although I'm all talk)
