at 9 wks he thinks he owns the flock and watches over the pullets.
Wow, Leghorn roos get amazing combs! Its hard to believe he's 9 weeks.
WOW---that's nine weeks? That is a lot of roo for that age.
I ordered the fry pan special from MMM, actually it was a mistake I meant to order the heavy roo special, I wasn't paying attention I guess. Anyway we received 25 of these guys about half have these wonderful big red combs the others are quite a bit smaller. The roos with the big combs are the most assertive and this guy is the boss. They are really a nice group, kind of hate to eat them.
I love watching my little leghorn roos fighting with each other at that age (more like playing) They chase each other around and grab little tufts of feathers from another roos hackle and pull on them it is so cute,,,,I could watch it all day
that is pics of two different roos the one in the second picture has a very nice comb they look like they are at least 3 months old if not older
I was going to say they looked different... sometimes it is hard to tell when you have so many of the same bird. I do that all the time!
We had a few leghorn roos. They were too aggressive for the hens, though. They all became fryers. BUT they sure were good lookin' guys and they sure liked to pose for the camera ....
he has a lovely comb too,,,,and by the way,,,,did you chang e the picture in your avatar to a more smiley one?
That's a beautiful bird!
Why yes, bantamgal, I did change my avatar pic. I have lost 115 lbs. since the last pic was taken, so I felt it was time to update. Also probably why I'm smiling so big
I love the combs on leghorns. They can grow to be REALLY big (just look at the one on my blog/website for comparison).
