    I've posted pictures of this bird a few times because I can't figure out what it is. I got it from a friend who'd purchased a dozen chicks at a farm supply store to use in an Easter photo shoot and then gave them away after the shoot was done.

    Any guesses as to what it is? I've been thinking it's a rooster but its comb and wattles have stopped developing, its neck feathers are round, and it doesn't have any saddle feathers.

    As you can see from the pic, this chicken and I aren't sure what to think of one another.

    It looks like an EE, probably roo. Because of the beard and muffs, you never will see much development in the wattle area. But my pullets didn't have combs that red until they were 6-8 months old.

    If that is what he turns out to be, he's a very lucky roo as I've found him a home in the country at a church camp.
