    This very hefty 11- 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.

    Cyn, He is such a pretty boy. If I did not already have his brother, Traveler, I'd so take him.

    Didn't get the message till this morning, bj. I'm an hour away from Dahlonega and maybe about the same distance from Cleveland, maybe slightly more.

    Robin, I know you would. If you had both, that'd be about 24 lb worth of Suedelettes, LOL.

    Adding pics of Roosevelt from today. You can see that he is as tall as the grown Orp hens and if he grows into his legs, he'll be massive. In the second pic, that is his real mother in the pen to the left, the red girl laying down. The Orp hen who raised him is beside him.

    My partner in Chicken Math and I are in the process of rehabilitating the coops and runs on the place where he's moving to. I'll post pics when we're done. If Roosevelt is still available when we get them in acceptable shape, we'll come get him. He's just SO gorgeous! Want to have the best accommodations possible for him and his future harem!
