    Hello everyone!

    I've been searching around and cant seem to find the kind of roo I'm after.

    We have a Road Runner Roo (polish/silkie cross) who doesn't crow, he has a permanent sore throat. its more of a loud cough than a crow. My Wyandotte's make more noise than him, but he is gorgeous and looks after his girls (all bantams except 2 chocolate orps)

    Thing is, I we LOVE to see a proper roo strutting his stuff with a bit plumage tail proud tail and some gorgeous colouring.
    I've seen a few pretty mille fleur but its not the kid of 'up' tail.

    some welsummer bantams have if right colour combination

    these were found on google pictures, I've linked them into the post hopefully the owner wont mind. http://www.pets4homes.co.uk/classifieds/517997-free-cockerels-welsummer-x-black-rock-bridgwater.html&ust=1406449348700527

    A question best suited for the General Breed Discussions and FAQ forum.
