Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by Harmony Hill, Jan 15, 2015.
This guy showed up Sunday, some background in New Member Intro. Anyone know what he is?
Looks like a young Black Minorcas who hasn't molted yet. He will lose those white feathers when he molts. I don't know though, he should have white ear tufts, so maybe not a Black Minorcas.
Maybe the white on the ears comes in after he molts?
Looks like a mixed breed. Probably has some Old English Game in him.
I am reading threw the info here, and am not quite sure if I should get a pen for him or not. Some places were saying to not pen a rooster, then other were commenting on thier rooster being in pen w/hens. I am on post 100 of 291 in the raising a rooster section.
not sure what is best for him - suggestions welcome!
I have an opportunity to get a Eglu Go, with the pen. I was all for it thinking I was doing what is best for him, but now I am really not sure.
I let my extra roos free range and they do really well. They spend most of their time in my vegetable garden, but come running if I go into the back yard. I don't feed them or give them shelter although there are plenty of places to get if threatened by hawks or neighborhood dogs.
I don't think he's a Black Minorca with those red earlobes. I think Wyandottes7 is probably right; he looks like an Old English Game mix.
I don't know what breed(s) are represented here any one care to guess?
I think papa possible American game bantam?
mama ? is she also a bantam? California gray or Plymouth rock? she was a good mamma but mean now the hens have grown.
The hens are black (with blue and green) sheen in the right light. (one has some brown/red neck feathers. used her for my avatar.) the speckled chicks turned into the Roos.
Mamma and her chicks now grown.
sounds like a black sex link
