    This is Rex! Isn't he a beauty? 8 months old, he is a mottled java/ dominique cross. I wish I could get closer for a shot of that beautiful comb and neck feathering. He's such a gentlemen with us and the hens, we just adore him.

    This is fun! I can't have roos where I live, so I am really enjoying everyone's pics.

    I doubt I could catch him to find out! haha. he's certainly a meaty fellow though. The plastic container in the foreground of the third pic is your standard yougurt/sour cream size circumference and he stands a little above my knee. He was broody raised and has never been handled so that's about all I can give you for scale. I'm certainly curious now though!

    [​IMG]My beautiful one year old rooster Hexen one of my white Ameraucana roos and my little man 7 week old Hans one of 2 Cream legbars I got in December. I always show off my old man Elvis the GLW in my avatar so I decided to show off a couple of my younger ones.

    Thanks that was my goal to get large thighs and legs. I am thinking he weighs 20-25 pounds. Unfortunately, he appears to be sterile as I have not had an egg from his girls develop yet. which means 3 years work is lost.
