    Any ideas on what breed of rooster Mr Wonderful is? We purchased him last week with a few hens from a farm with multiple roosters so he looks a little rough. Hopefully his tailfeathers will grow back soon. He has a little feathering on his feet and in sunlight some of his feathers appear to be a little blue. He should be happier now. We have 27 hens and he is the only rooster.

    He could very well be a pure Faverolles, just on the light side. A "claire" - one with little mahogany in him.
