OK, I am in hell.
Well, ok, that's an over statement. Well, ok, a SERIOUS overstatement. But still...
I have five males from the Aloha Naked Neck eggs that are really getting to the culling age (12 weeks). I originally was going to keep none (only so much room for roosters here), then I thought, maybe I'll keep one. And THEY ARE ALL SO PRETTY!!!!!
Most likely keeper is this boy, whom I call Rocky, because he is less likely to be full brother to the two pullets.
This is another nice looking boy, but is probably full brother (also Nn).
@DesertChic, you will not be at all surprised to know that the tiniest boy (the one I would never choose to keep) is the friendly, curious, cute puppy-like one. I have not encouraged this or cuddled him, but still...
Even this boy, the only fully feathered one. A bit of a jerk, but I find him really lovely.
I WANT TO KEEP THEM ALL!!!!

I feel you. It's how I've wound up with far more roosters than I need and a lot of balding hens/pullets as a result. And my last hatch....well, lets just say that getting help from my hubby in taking care of them has resulted in him labeling three as "absolute keeps", and all three are cockerels. *Sigh*
