    12 week old blue orpington cockeral hatched March 29 from TOH's stock.

    He has been hand raised and lived in my house for 6 weeks.

    [​IMG]

    He has been fed Purina Start and Grow, yogurt, meal worms, grass, salad greens and pastured with other bugs and worms.

    [​IMG]

    He is a friendly boy but like all chickens will require your handling to make him YOUR rooster.

    [​IMG]

    He will grow out to be a very large rooster and will need large fowl breed hens for a flock. He will be much too large for many breed of hens and requires large girls for his harem.

    This blue orpington boy will grow to look similar to Mosby.

    This cockeral is not for sale.

    I am asking $10. Pick up only.

    If you won't ship, can you teach them to fly out here? [​IMG]

    If their fat bodies could fly that far they would be yours.

    Sadly, if no one takes them they will end up in my freezer.

    I can only keep just so many cockerals.

    Is there any chance that you might have a blue Orpington rooster that's about a month old (and you're fairly?? sure it's a rooster) that you could ship to me? If it did turn out to be a hen, it'd be okay. I could send you the first one of my bO roosters that crows; they are now four weeks old. I just don't want to keep the brothers of my hens. When they crow, they go.

    Sorry. I do not ship chicks. They are pick up only.

    I have buff orps and blue orps and black orps and splash orps and the cockerals abound!

    Thanks for the offer though. There are people up your way with blues. Ask around. [​IMG]

    I wish you weren't so far away! And, I've only got the one Blue Orp pullet, she's a sweety and good w/smaller chicks! I guess that's the next flock...
