    I used to have a rooster that was big, pea combed,and stood pretty well up but not as much as a shamo rooster
    he looked like the americana rooster on this page but bigger http://www.lopsofenchantment.com/otheranimals.html
    I
    have his great great offspring that is a rooster his mom was a game making him small and long( not standing up strait)
    he still has the pea comb. looks at lot like the last bird on this page http://www.feathersite.com/Poultry/ChickMixG/BRKMixed2.html
    my
    goal is to "recreate" the old rooster
    i have some very largeblack hens that are related to the old rooster and what i think i should do is to breed the young rooster i have now with them to maybe get the size that the old rooster had and still keep the color
    but what bird could i breed those offspring to that would give it a taller look????
    if i could find a picture of the old rooster i will put it on
    im going to post a picture of the young rooster i have now
    thank you the pictures below is the father of the young rooster i have now this rooster had a tall stance like what i want but no size and i dont have him anymore just his offspring confusing!!
