I took the opportunity to take more pictures of my other roos today!
This little guy is Hilbert. He's a little pest, who instead of going out and eating with the rest of the birds, pecks at my leg until I pick him up and put him in the feed trashcan to eat by himself.
And this is Francis Dolarhyde! The only rooster of my "Hannibal" crew of EEs.
This here is The Doctor, my Summie boy.
My BlueCM cockerel - he's not named, but I'll be using him alongside Francis over a bunch of EE hens this coming spring.
Not actually a rooster, but a capon. And a shame too! I have a breeding project I needed a bird like him for; problem is, I only came up with the concept for the project after I caponized him... oops.
One of my (hatchery) Dark Cornish boys. I have two of them caponed and the other three unaltered, and I can't really tell which is which - I left them unbanded to see if they would be noticeably different when grown. So this could really be a rooster or a capon.
My two oldest SussexxRock sex link capons. They are growing out beautifully, and I can't wait for their younger brothers to get as big and handsome as them.
Dean Winchester (big) - he was supposed to be a capon but SOMEBODY (me) apparently missed something during the operation, so he's taken to crowing and mating lately. Admittedly it's not the worst thing to happen - he has some interesting genetics. 1/2 EE, 1/4 Jersey Giant, 1/4 show quality True Ameraucana).
Sam Winchester - fellow capon of Dean, but his operation seems to have been done fully.
Elvis, Polish x Naked Neck who I got from a friend as a "pullet". Hmm.
And the five boys living under my porch: Crele, Buff, Cochin Mutt 1, Cochin Mutt 2, and Fox BaitEdited by QueenMisha - 12/30/15 at 12:25pm
