    This bird was supposed to be a SLW pullet and I believe it is a roo and definitely not SLW. Any ideas? In this pic it would be about 10-11 weeks old. Now at 14 weeks, it is larger than my RIR hens and has really heavy legs, which is why I think rooster, except it's tail has grown tremendously upwards and does resemble my Australorp hen's tail.
    I'm baffled

    Hmmm... definitely a dinosaur! I agree that everything about that bird looks pullet except those ginormous legs! Holy chicken god! I have no idea.

    Immature blue Wyandotte roo. He'll be pretty once he gets out of the dino stage

    I didn't know JG came in blue, but that makes sense and when I look it up, there are birds that look identical. If it is indeed a pullet, me thinks I shall need a super sized nesting box!
