This rooster hatched 3/2010 from a dark egg (about a 7 on Marans scale), and comes from good blood lines. He has nice feathered legs and a good broad body. He'd make a good dad. He has been fed certified organic food and free range. I have 3 like this, too many roosters. Would like to find him a new home. It is generally about 55.00 to ship, plus 10.00 for a new box, by express. Contact me for shipping details or more photos. I can't ship to Va.
