    About 3 months old - I think all 3 are cockerels. Not hatchery stock & they are bantams.

    Well I WAS going to process them but now, after that comment, perhaps I should try to re-home them. They come from Dick Horstman lines so I'm not surprised they are turning out so handsome. :)

  6. You're right, it would be worth the try! [​IMG] I'm in awe of that good quality barring, quite frankly.

    I would advertise them and see who bites. Those birds should easily sweep any 4-H competition (except the one with the excess white), and bantam barred Rocks aren't an easy find.

    Where are you located?

    They truly are beautiful. You may want to advertise on the BYC buy, sell, trade forum that appeals to breeders and show folks
