Nice boy - mine also has the white fuzzy feathers on the root of the tail. 

 

He is looking very attentive to his girls.

All 4 of my roosters too

Home of the world's cutest dachshund, one crazy blue heeler, two cats,
              one fat pony, and many (but not too many!) chickens

              Can anyone tell me, how many are too many chickens?

Waiting till April till then Im hatching Pita Pintas.

You know a dozen fertile eggs is not really a 12 step program

Since my birds will not be separated until April, and the temps here are still too cold to gather good quality eggs, I will not have eggs to ship until the end of April. For anyone interested in eggs, I will post when they are ready.

Hey everyone. I am new to the site and new to raising chickens. I stumbled across this thread when I searched "Arkansas." I got sucked in and I just finally finished reading all of the original and this second thread! Whew! I'm exhausted and my eyes crossed several times when it got deep into genetics, but I learned a lot! I really hated to see caj1985 have to loose all her birds,

They really are something!

 

Mine are jumping half way up into my plum tree to get at the blossoms. The other breeds are on the ground eating the petals that fall to the ground. They really like to go high up into the tree!
