    Someone had contacted me about her 4 roosters (1 white frizzle, 1 tiny black frizzle, 1 white cochin & 1 black cochin) that were beating each other up. I agreed to take them. They were in with hens, so of course they were fighting. Here is a picture of the cochin with such a pretty coat. He got it the worst. He lost 1/2 of a wattle, and he was also keeping one eye shut [​IMG]

    Poor baby. They are all very gentle, and love to be picked up. I love to just hold them and love them, the black cochin still shakes when i hold him [​IMG]

    Heres a few more of the other guys.... all got torn up from fighting
