We have a few roos. They are still babies (6 weeks or so), but I love them. Especially the rather unattractive mutt roo who is all white except for ONE splash feather. I was sure he was a roo when I saw him with his other BR hatchmates. I didn't want him as he was even UGLY as a one week old, but I couldn't leave him alone, taking all the others. So home he came, and I thought if he isn't a she, he is outta here, soon. Of course that is the one my darling six year old son picked as "his". Well this guy has turned out to be top dog, but as gentle and good as can be. He is definitely doing his thing, keeping the girls in line, protecting them and generally watching his flock. Boy, is he busy. He is also the first to jump on our laps and allow us to pet him. Hoping he continues to be this sweet and effective. He will be our free ranging protector as long as he continues to be this lovable.
