    they are a little wet so their feathers aren't in the best shape

    They look like BB Reds to me, but it's hard to tell for sure because the rooster's coloring is a little patchy. Is he still a young cockerel?

    Yes, definitely BB Red. They are the cutest little miniature roosters! I had to find mine a new home because we can't keep roosters within city limits, such a shame.

    We can't have them either but luckily my neighbors love them and even open their windows in the morning to listen. I'm glad he's a specific color! I'm planning on showing him [​IMG]

    Are you planning on showing him just as a cockerel (young bird under one year old), or when he is a cock (over a year old)? If you show him as a cock bird, dubbing (removal of most of the comb, wattles, and earlobes) is required.
