    This rooster decided to come live with us since we have so many hens. He used to live next door and we have adopted him. He is very sweet to all the hens and even the babies. He also shows so aggression towards our kids (they are out with the chickens all day).
    What is he? We call him "The Boss" lol

    Ok, I have found this thread. Your little guy looks a lot smaller than Mr. Fancy Pants who is a Black Breasted American Game from the Dr. Kozura line. It is a very old line and a large fowl bird. Do you have more photos?
