    do they fly well at all, or do they just attack hawks for tasty snacks? lol any comparison pics to show size? though look huge already, like homer crossed with meat birds.. ??? gorgeous though, id love some oneday maybe, probably like everyone else here.

    here's a size comparison with one of my rollers, the hen is really big, bigger than the male, the breeder said she should produce super cocks when bred
