    Hi guys,

    I was just PMing someone about eggs and then we got to talking about my two chickens I have. I sent them a picture because I wanted to have my birds IDed. The hen I have just learned is a barred rock (which makes sense lol). The rooster however hasnt' been IDed. He is deffiantly a rooster, (crows, mates with the hen in question, and has spurs). He's a great boy. We got him from someone at my moms work WHO got him from someone at his church who was going to kill him because he supposedly was a flogger. He has NOT flogged anyone hes actually a very wonderful rooster. Crows everytime he sees me such a sweetie. He will also jump for food if I ask him to.

    I know isnt he (handsome)! I just adore him [​IMG] One odd thing though is do ya'll think he could be mixed with frizzle??? A lot of his feathers curl, and they have this rough texture to them. Tomorrow if i have time I'll try to get a close up picture of what im talking about...it reminds me so much of those frizzle chickens.

    Rhode Island Red bantam! Squee!! my little frizzle chick's father is one of those. [​IMG]
    My Frizzle chick's mother is a white frizzle cochin Bantam, and the father is a smooth feathered RIR Bantam. There is a pic of my frizzle in my signature.
