    I like Homer because I think he is cuter. [​IMG] I like Homer's colors better. I would keep both though.

    I like Homer better. I prefer his coloring, tail shape and his wings seem more silkied than Barts flat feathered wings.

    Both are nice! Would love to have some similar colored roos in my flock.

    [​IMG] Oh, I'm keeping both... I just would like feedback on which one to keep with Lisa and Marge. [​IMG] Neither roo has pressed his dominance, so it hasn't been easy to decide which one to keep in the pen with the girls. I like both their coloring, and they're pretty similar as far as combs, feathering on the legs, they both have good toe definition...

    It seems pretty split so far... hopefully more people will "vote"... [​IMG]

    Fancie217... that's one of my things on my "to do list". [​IMG]

    Hi Mrs. AK-Bird-Brain, Your birds are all beautiful and both of your rooster are very handsome. I really like Barts coloring, I choose Bart!​

    I would keep homer for shape, but bart has an interesting colour.... (this of course given both have the correct comb and toes).
