I enjoy New Hampshires.Their big,and docile.

 

Here is a Picture of my boy Zeus.(This is him today.)

It's rare for this breed to be aggressive.That is him in his cockerel days (Before he got the guts to fight his brother.)

He takes his job seriously.He shows the hens dust bathing areas (He makes it turn into a dust party)He shows them treats,he's pretty active breeder,and he protects and alerts his hens of ANY danger.Their also competitive.

 

Leghorns are also great rooster,but usually are never too friendly.

Here ismy use to be rooster Foggy.He probably still looks the same,but probably has spurs.

 

He would have made a great rooster,but he just wouldn't stop fighting Zeus.

I have a  few chickens.

2 barreds,named Falcon and Hawk

1 New Hampshire rooster named,Zeus

2 New Hampshire hens named,Vanillipe (One has no name)

1 silver laced Wyandotte named,Special girl

1 White Leghorn roosters named Foggy

3 black&red Sex links,(Black)angel,and one red is named little red,and the other one is Mrs.Prissy

And a few others that sadly,died

 

I have a 11 ducks.

:welcome

 

 

Giant breeds like Brahmas and Cochins, and Jersey Giants are going to be the biggest. 

 

Orpingtons and Marans get pretty large also. 

 

Or, you can go exotic and look at the Shamos, breeds like that.
