    Wow, are they good birds to have? Docile, easy to be around? They are pretty, I like the bigger breeds.

    Maggie is my favorite and yes they are very docil and sweet birds. She does sound like a goose though, she has a deep voice kinda like a fog horn. When she bok boks I know it's her.

    Here's the best picture I have of Brucey aka Bruce Lee. He has a killer jumping front kick. I have to keep him under lock and key. He's not very social. He has whiped ever living thing around here, including me. He's standing on a 5 gal bucket and that's two good sized Turkens in there with him. I'll say he is close to 18 pounds. He's one big Jersey Gaint.[​IMG]

    :eek: 18 lbs?!?!?! Yikes, he'd really like to get ahold of my 2 Chihuahuas that are 4 and 5 lbs. Are the Jersy roos usually aggressive or are they like all other roos and it just depends? He is beautiful though.
