FREE cockerels / EE & Australorp / GA (Marietta) *PICS ADDED*

  1. We are starting to thin out our little herd. I have two that I am pretty sure are cockerels: one very pretty Easter Egger and one very scraggly-looking Australorp. They will be five weeks old this week and they are free to anybody who wants them.

    Australorps do look really scraggly at that age, but he will feather out beautifully, so don't worry. [​IMG]

    The first australorps I raised I thought were the ugliest birds ever - I was sure they were going to be disgustingly ugly as adults! LOL! By 14 weeks they were the prettiest birds in my flock. [​IMG]

    So, somebody come get Felicitas' soon-to-be pretty roo! [​IMG]

    The 'lorp has one heck of a tall pink comb coming up already. I think he will definitely be a very handsome boy when he gets a little more age on him.

    I am waiting to hear back from someone in PM about these two. I will have more available as their sex become obvious.
