By the way it acts, we're leaning towards a rooster...
When you open the cage to play with him he charges at you, as if he is going to attack, but stops just short of your hand. We have been giving him lots of attention, so hopefully, we'll be able to keep it, to replace the giant rooster we have.
Barney is not a gentle rooster, half our hens have no feathers on their back.
If Barney is a Buff Orpington (father) and mother hen an Aracauna what does that make Rusty?
Hmmm~ would he be a Buff Orpacauna, or a Buff Aracorpington?
