    GORGEOUS rooster!

    You have to be outside of the United States though, right?

    What other colors do you keep?

    Yes I am outside of the United States but have legally exported eggs into your Country through Defra in my Country and your Health Department USDA - Birds were blood tested and passed before eggs were sent over to your Country. But of course it is not cheap. I sent out Bantam Orpington eggs.
    Thank you for your comments on this chap.
