I thought this was interesting. I butchered 6 boys today, my head roo, and 5 cockrels. I was having fertility issues w/ the head roo and he had been acting off. It was a good thing I dispatched him, he was in bad shape internally, free yellow fluid, bad liver, enlarged heart, and his testes were very small. This guy was almost 2 years old. The other 5 birds were w/I a week or so of the same age, here is one teste from each of them. Can you tell who the loud mouth was???? lol lol Shakespear, the older head roo is the first teste.
LOL - that's like the cockerels we butchered a few years ago because they were overly aggressive with the hens and with each other. Their testicles were enormous and we were looking at them thinking "no wonder they were such jerks". Always more interesting when you have comparisons like this to see.
