I have a small backyard flock and have decided to keep a Rooster. I have 2 EE Roos that are 11 weeks old. These are really barnyard mixes that were hatched from green eggs. One of the roos is black with a red, large comb and black legs, the other is reddish with blueish tail feathers with a Peacomb. Both are crowing nonstop. The reddish boy is my favorite, but he has a very long neck and came down with a case of wry neck a few weeks ago. We cured it with vitamins and TLC, but is this a genetics thing? Would we be setting ourselves up for chicks with a tendancy toward wry neck?? My daughter asked this question and I thought I would throw it out there for you experts.
