What do you think about the wattles? They seem odd to me. This is a Tomaru cockerel I was growing out. The others don't have this type wattle.

I had some cockerels last year who had 2 wattles, but only one of them developed normally, and the other one stayed small

I'll need to catch him and look him over better. He has free ranged since pretty young, I had several Tomaru growing out to assess crow quality and he was to be on the chopping block as his crow is not long. I'll catch him and take better pictures.

Looked through the pictures I'd snapped of him the same day and enlarged and cropped some. Are the wattles just deformed or poorly developed? In this same group, I have one that is rumpless....not Araucana cross. Rumpless. I asked Julia Keeling about it and she said some of the pure ones in Japan were rumpless.

It looks like there are two wattles, just not much developed.
Are you sure he is rumpless or just tailless? I have a pullet who began growing her tail in her 5th month. I thought she was rumpless too. Never seen anything like it before in my entire life. Just when you think you have seen it all...

Have a nice video of Jungle Fowl that just popped up. Pictures of a number of varieties with very interesting combs and wattles. No web address, but I moved it to my Facebook page and I think it would SHARE, if any wish to MESSAGE your email address, I will Share it.

I see that Facebook doesn't allow me to COPY/Paste, or to Share the video, except with "friends". It was not posted with a Web address, so unless someone knows better than I do--you will have to see this JUNGLE FOWL site on my Facebook page. I thought it worth keeping. Facebook: Cathryn J Ean Robocker I am sure you can access it without being having a Facebook page. If you do have one, it will SHARE to you.
I do not correspond via Facebook, but keep in touch with what's going on with family and a few poultry friends from around the world.

Tried again, your email, but apparently, it will only go to a Facebook page, but I am not sure why you cannot see it on my facebook Home page. It is quite far down, now, as I have added many snow pictures, but it is there--a very colorful video.

Cathryn J Ean Robocker is facebook id.
