young cockerel, not crowing yet, just starting to grow hackles and saddle feathers. His color is a little lighter than shown, he is in the shade. His color as of now is a little bit reddish, not so auburn colored. He is pure Barber lines, hatched from JamesA eggs. Lots of great size, early development and good color from his line. Anyhow, anyone looking for a good project roo to try their hand at making Blue Laced Red Orpingtons from scratch, this might be just the roo you were looking for! Let me know if you want him. Local pickup preferred. I have never shipped a bird, but am willing to learn. I don't have shipping boxes, so you will have to buy one and have it shipped here if you want to ship him.
