Also, the kids like their personality best out of all of the breeds that we have tried.
I already have some, but most breeders that ship don't have the quality that I want (their birds are too fluffy, like a Barred Rock not a Dominique or the rooster has a giant rose comb and wattles), or they have great birds, and do not ship.
Most people around here call them domineckkers. Idk why.
Go for what works for u AL.
Im planning a 600 mile round trip for 1 cockeral. Im totally on board with you
