As you can see, I am bored today so posting on here.
I went out and took some pictures of my breeding roosters (not including Bert Jr and the creamers.
This is the fantastic Mr. Ed.
I love his comb, no frost bitten tips and he looks great.
This is King George. As you can see he lives in prison and may never get out again. I am thinking of building him his own prison so the British gals can get out, but it is so close to breeding time, I may just leave them in with him, and then make soup out of him in May.
This is my BA. not the quality of Ed. but I like the BA hens, I liked his father, and I want to keep the line going just because they are great layers, mothers and fun chickens to have around. He will never produce a show chicken.
This is Ole's son, my EE rooster. I have not named him yet. He is a little camera shy and not a lap bird, but none of mine really are. I assume he will pass on Ole's Blue egg gene. Or hope he will! He is the only EE I rooster I kept this year, the rest are in Freezer camp awaiting their chance to accompany a dumpling to the table. I really like the EE's and I liked Ole, except for the serial rapist part. I am hoping this guy will not become one of them. Right now I have these three roosters together in my main coop and have not had an issue with the hens being harassed.
You have to admit, he is a handsome guy.
