    This guy is some what older, has spurs about 1.5 inches long that have been clipped back. With that kind of growth he has to be at least 2 I would think. He's not our rooster, by choice. He comes from across the street every morning to be with our girls, then goes home every night at dusk. He's so sweet, unlike our previous roo, he'll find a pile of bugs or something and just go nuts squaking and such until the ladies come over. Any why here he is, what do you think? I origionaly thought some kind of Game cross?

    At least, now we know why the rooster crossed the road. Maybe hens do it for hanky panky also. Lol

    Quote:Thanks. That looks a lot like him so I bet you're right. Neighbors said that he use to be a "bad" chicken, but really I haven't met a nicer roo. We'll see what his babies look like here in a couple weeks. My Banty Minorca decided to be a stuborn broody so after fighting her for 3 days I gave in, she's on 4 eggs.
    And he is a lrg fowl, some where between the size of my leghorn hen and my BR hen.
