    This is a lemon blue cochin, at 2 weeks, it is the only one out of 14 that is getting such a prominent comb. I plan on keeping one roo, but hope to not have to send too many to freezer camp. What do you think? roo??

    That comb sure is awful red at 2 weeks old. I say with the color and size you have a roo.

    yeah, I'm thinking I just might have to keep him. Now if only the others don't decide to grow combs and learn to crow [​IMG]

    he'll be your favorite, too. My rooster had SO much personality.....
    but he had to go......... miss him dearly.
    Although I don't miss the "attacks" when I first let him
    out of the coop in the AM... would "size-me-up" daily...
    making sure I wasn't making a move on his ladies...
