    I think I see some oin feathers in that first photo.

    Pretty good odds they will come, some roos are real slow at getting the tail feathers in.



    Good luck

    He feathered out a lot over a week ago when I was away. It was crazy! But still no tail... in the tail spot are still the little fluffy down feathers... I am still curious if he is an aussie or not too.

    My roo took 2 months for a start of tail feathers to come in. urs looks like an aussie to me, it will take awhile for his tail to`come in lol

    Are aussie roosters tamer than some other ones? He is nuts so I was just wondering. I dont want to have to get rid of him, but if he keeps up his nuttiness I will have too.
