    Check out my new big boy. The pics don't do him justice, that's a full size straw bale he is next to though.
    Completely solid, that's not fluff your looking at, I haven't weighed him yet because he doesn't fit in the bucket but I'm guessing right around 16 or 17 lbs.
    sooo . . . care to take a guess at the cross CX X ?

    " giant leap forward " describes it well . Pea comb ? How do you get a black tailed , red roo out of a white CX ??????????
    Looks a little like a Brahma cross just because of the heavy , upright body but the head reminds me of Saipan so ???????????
    Congrats , where in the world did you find that thing ?
    You'll need a steel apron with built in jackstands for that poor little pullet looking at him [​IMG]

    Wait, I'm confused, is this the result of one of your CX crosses, or a new roo you're planning to cross with your CXs?

    I'm also really curious about his lineage, I mean, yeesh, he could pull a cart.

    His color reminds me of a New Hampshire red X Jersey Giant for size? Beautiful color! [​IMG]
