Roo that serves as my avatar finally crowed his last, just short of 8 yrs. Our remaining Black Sex Link hen, still very lively for an 8yr.old production girl, had only turkeys to keep her company (plans to get down to Estes for more BSL's aren't going to pan out this year). Cass heard of a cockerel that was headed for the stew pot and..., of course, it was recently liberated from quarantine (~4 months old). We introduced him to the `old lady' and he's been nothing if not a gentleman (pretty much following her lead and not being compulsive about `covering' her). If anyone could help sort out the lineage, just a bit, I'd be grateful.
