    This very hefty 12- week old cockerel is out of a Blue Orp rooster (Suede) over RIR/Buff Orp hen (Meg, who is out of exhibition size Buff Orp stock).

    Roosevelt's mother is about 9-10 lb and his sire 13 lb so I'm betting he'll top 12 lbs. when he matures.

    Was raised by a broody hen (still living with her in the old ladies' coop). I need him to have a nice home where he can belong. Don't want him to be here at mating age as he will be too large for those girls.

    The newest feathers coming in are flaming red-orange like his mama, so he may be a good start on a red Orpington project for someone.

    I'd like to see pics of your coop/pen where he will be living, please. Must reassure myself that he will have a safe home environment.

    Pickup only, won't ship. I'm in Fannin County, GA, right at the NC line.

    I'm wangling the budget like crazy, but dollars don't respond the same as Chicken Math. I'm going to give it my all, though.

    That is the broody who raised him, but not his biological mom. This red hen, my RIR/Buff Orp cross Meg, is Roosevelt's mom.
