Hello my name is Cricket, because I am a master cricket hunter! My Mom bought me out of a assorted bantam bin and now she is starting to think I'm looking pretty good! All kidding aside, this is my 8-9 week old Japanese BTB. He displays all the characteristics of a great chicken, in and out of the coop. I was sad when I discovered he was a Cockerel but I adore him too much to let him (or one of his coop brothers) go just yet. It took a while for me to pin point his exact breed but now that I have I think he may be ready to enter the poultry contest in October (as a Cockerel) at the Fair. There is a category for clean legged J. BTB and I think he meets all the criteria so far. Any opinions on his leg length? They are short true to the breed but he kept insisting on laying down when I was taking photos. And here are some rear photos of him going back into the coop, you can notice the legs a bit more here Here he was just a couple weeks ago before moving into the coop.
