    I've been getting mixed feedback on my new roo, who is an angel (so far). Wondering whether he's a Wheaton Maran or a Wyandotte. Thoughts? He is gorgeous. Raised in captivity for a year, now he is on our free range homestead. It took him a few days to acclimate, but he's now the boss of our land and we love it. [​IMG]

    I'm going with Welsummer. He looks just like a Welsummer. :)

    A Marans should have feathered shanks. And a Wyandotte should have a rose comb. So Welsummer is probably a safe bet.
