Crevecoeur rooster photos from today...

  1. I was trying to get his pinkish earlobes...LOL

    His beard could be better & his crest larger but he was a good place to start. His temperament is very good (I've had some not-so-nice Creve roosters, let me tell you!) LOL

    If you look real close in this picture you can see month-old Creve chicks in the background...they had a few hours of sunshine today! The wind was howling, too!

    Really interesting-looking. I've never seen a Creve Coeur before.
     
  3. Thank you! It's been a real challenge to find decent stock and even then it's hard! [​IMG]

    Good lookin' fella! How big is he?
     
  5. He's probably 8-9lbs and not quite one year old. They are actually surprisingly heavy when you pick them up--they are heavier than they look!

    That's a heavy bird. I reviewed your web site and wondered where one can find a good source of information on rare breeds?

    Oh, he's a cool fellow! Beautiful, and I love his crest. I'll bet he's just magnificent in person. [​IMG]
