    Polish rooster - what colour would you call this ?

    Hi, so I have this guy… supposedly a white crested Cuckoo Polish but he obviously has another colour tone mixed in. My questions: Is their a name for this colour pattern ? If I breed to a standard white crested cuckoo hen am I going to get gold colour leakage ?

    Young roosters raping hens :(

    My big australorp roo Pecker is a gentleman but his two sons are not. I’m thinking of making one Chris-Chan because he is… “enamored” with his mother and she isn’t reciprocating those feelings. The other has targeted one of my RIR hens and refuses to even flirt with other hens and mates her...

    2 Roosters in Granville, OH

    I have 2 Ameraucana-mixes (I'm not sure what the mother/s was/were as there were several different breeds in the flock) that I'm looking to re-home. They hatched 6/21/2021 and were hand raised, so they have been as decent as a rooster can be with people so far. They are really beautiful birds...
