    Hi Everybody!

    We hope you can help us identify our gorgeous rooster. We are new chicken lovers. We got him in November 2008. His name is Herman and is about 2 feet when standing tall. He is great and looks so proud when he crows. He has yellow legs and a big comb and waddle and white ear lobes. Hopefully I can download some pics to help.
