They told me aust x orp.

He has a pea comb.
white legs and body
alert but placid - still falls over his feet (5 mths now)
He is a std tall roo
upper body is red/dark buff with grey fluff and underneath is grey, the saddle feathers are the same red but meet the grey at the bottom
his tail is black with specks of grey at the base.
He isn't crowing, still loves to visit inside, comes when called and just starting to stand up to the hens.

He is a total challenge but I'd like to know what he could throw back if we keep him.. all my girls are purebred.

Ideas anyone??

Ok as I am very illiterate when it comes to posting a pic can someone pls give me very simple instructions. Learning difficulties are not welcome when it comes to my feathered family..

Just to add this guy is still so unstable on his feet and trips over a lot. He often falls down our 3 stairs.
This morning he came up to me and started doing hen housework.. I have actually had this happen before. Looks like a roo sounds like a roo lays like a hen and crows when it has laid..

He is a ring in from someone else's back yard so no relation to any of my girls..

Are you using a ipad or similar, mine is a samsung, if yes its pretty easy.
When you post down the bottom it says choose file , select and you get options like camera, gallery. I select camera then take photo , next you will see add the file, a bar thing will pop up saying uploading ( if you get a warning saying file is to big, you may need to take a new photo at a different distance to get less pixels ). Once it has uploaded you will see a file number in the box that was choose file and another saying place in line, select this which will then place this file number in the big top box, then type in your comments and hit post,submit as usual. :thumbs: good luck, its fairly easy once you get the hang of it.

Well if he is laying eggs and shouting out his accomplishment 'He' is definately a 'She' so her colouring will have no effect on that of your hens :laughing
Some hens are just more butch than others- they do pseudo crows and have a more masculine personality. Often they take charge of the flock and 'rule the roost', keeping the peace without being aggressive.
If you do get a rooster she will probably step down with no major dramas.
