    thinking about what birds this spring, I want the "classic" looking rooster. I decided probably partridge rock. Can I see some pics?

    I have one, ticks, but my camera is down. He is very, very beautiful! Tri-colored and so brightly colored it almost hurts your eyes! His legs are the most orange I've ever seen on a chicken. And he's just the right size, not too small and not a big slunger that hurts my hens. Leggy, proud, very mild and sweet....very gentle with the ladies and he's only 5 mo. old!

    I needed pics anyway, I'll get tomorrow or Friday, but mine are still Juvenille. So they don't have mature feathers or colors yet. And some are missing a LOT of feathers due to an argument with a bad BA who pulled them out. They're growing in new at an amazing rate though.

    That's a very pretty broody Mahonri!

    Here's a picture of my rooster. We have several hens that look like Mahonri's. They are all gentle and our rooster is not mean...even when we had several others.

    Mine has that little tuft of downy hair at the base of his tail also...never saw this on a rooster before. Is this specific to this breed?

    I'm not sure, but all of the Partridge Rock roosters we had had the down. I thought it would go away as they got older...he is the only one we have left and he is 3 years and still has his downy spot.
