    Does this rooster look like a nice specimen for a brood cock?? I know he is not a show bird. He is a big bird at almost 11 pounds. I don't have him yet. Do you think I should get him?

    Quote:What do you want them for? Pets & eggs? Heritage or exhibition? He looks like a nice, healthy production type Barred Rock. Is his weight a guess or did they actually weigh him? Not too many production type birds get that big....

    I brought him home. He weighs 8lbs 2 ounces on a certified scale. He is huge but his breast is really thin and he seriously needs some groceries. I will probably put him on a high fat dog food diet
