ah ha no wonder they look fluffy and like clouds. SOOOO pretty and good luck with your breeding!!!

Did you see the new roo yet?  Here's a few pics of him..he's a little bloody and tired from the shipping and the fighting with the resident flock master...   You can't see it here, but in the sunlight his feathers glisten and sparkle with light reflecting off them.  He's so very soft it's hard to not want to stroke him when I have my hands on him!

I have a couple mix ones I do believe. Well I KNOW they're mixed RIR/BA but I think both of them are roos but am curious to see what they turn out to look like. Was going to eat them but don't know..... hee hee....... curious to see what they'll look like. 

LOVE your roo Bee. Soooo pretty!

awe look at my chicks. They were soooo young in this pic. Man time flies and it sure doesn't feel like it's been almost 5 years since I got them. I really do need to get me some more chicks started.
