    This is our Banty Rooster Barns. Any idea what he might be?? he has feathered feet and 4 toes. Use to have a long tail not sure if something got it or if he is molting right now.

    This is a Bearded Silky we call him/her Ando. A friend gave him to us, hoping he was a roo. We are not sure havn't seen him crow yet or get fiesty with the hens.
    What do you think???Boy or girl?

    I'm pretty positive that Ando is a roo. Way too tall for a lady and he has that slicked back crest.

    Ando as in the character off Heroes?? I have a little cockerel named Hiro after the show. [​IMG]

    Some boys just rarely crow. My La Fleche, I've yet to hear him crow.
    I have no idea what barns might be. A mix I am guessing, I have no idea of what.

    Barns looks like a Wyandotte mix. Gorgeous color!

    Thanks so much for the help. Im so glad to hear Ando is a boy. I can't wait to have some home hatched silky chicks next year.
    Angie---Yes I did name him off of heros I was going to call him Hiro but noticed when you helped me out on the sex of one of My silky crosses you mentioned that he looked like your rooster Hiro (who you said was a phenoix cross so I decided ando worked well and seems to fit him. and my silky mix got named Phenoix ( I can't seem to remember how to spell that this morning.)

    Thank you all again. I kinda figured Barns was a mix but thought I'd find out for sure
