My BA stayed outside all winter long too. We had a bitterly cold winter this year. He is still handsome without his points. I think they come into their hormones the spring after they are hatched. I have a hard time taking a picture of him because he is chasing the girls all over the place. Some of my girls are getting bare backs. He crows all day long too. He has a deeper crow that isn't as sharp as other roosters I had, if that makes any sense lol. On the lighter leg roosters, you can see red on them from the hormones coming in. In my GLW they have the yellow legs with red streaks/lines in them.
Yes, he is just going to be a year old this Spring... so... will he stay this virile, or will he settle down a bit? I can't deal with even a little aggression since I have small children running around the yard all the time. I hate to keep him confined to the coop/run all the time, the chickens really love being out in the yard.
