I got a new rooster at the flea market today. Hopefully, he will work out with the flock. So far so good. I will probably keep them all in the pen for a few days before letting them bck out into the backyard, as usual. If you click on the little photo, it should enlarge it, so you can see him better. His previous owners did keep his wing flight feathers clipped, so his wings are a little short. That will grow back in the next time he molts (once a year or so). As to his breed, I think he is a mutt. He exhibits traits of several different breeds....large, dark comb, feathered feet, and so on. But I still think he is a handsome bird.
