    Up for your consideration is Joe. This nice black cockerel is about 8 months old and has all the right stuff. Black eyes, clear hackles with no leakage, decent crest, small black comb, correct toes and a HUGE cushion. His disposition is wonderful. Imagine how great this is going to look when he has completely filled in. He is ready for his own girls and I believe will produce some awesome offspring.

    He is our only remaining black cockerel for this year. We did enter him in the CFPBA double show in Inverness a few weeks ago and he took a 1st and 2nd in his class. He is continuing to fill out and looking better and better. I really believe Joe will be quite a looker by the time he is a year old. I have included pics of his sire below.

    Pick up is welcome. Shipping is $55.00 and will include a new Horizon box and shipping waterer and feed.

    I thought so. resemblance is striking, isn't it !?!?!

    He has a SUPER personalilty too.
    A lot like my Supersplash roo in the other pen.
    All roos are not as nice as him, and I believe it is hereditary.
    All of Supersplash's offspring have that same personality too,
    so hope that "Cedar" (my black roo) passes on the characteristic too.

    You can breed for disposition !

    Are you going to the Dalton show this weekend? If so, could I pick him up there?

    How are his wings Judy? Looks maybe weak wings, or is it just the huge amount of shredding in the primaries?
