    im going to ohio national chicken show in columbus on the 13th and i need some opiniions on what kind of rooster i should get
    i dont want a huge rooster
    but i dont want a small rooster
    i want one thats in between if you can understand what i mean
    and i want an unbelieveably pretty one as well

    im gonna try and get a trio

    i already know what im getting on top of this roo and his 2 hens

    some show quality cochin bantams(any color)
    a standard cochin rooster(possibly white but any color is good)
    some show quality silkies(any color)
    and some call ducks(not sure what color)
    some guineas(not sure what color)
    and what ever you think is the prettiest rooster and his hens

  3. Well, I'd say Dark Brahma [​IMG] But ours is HUGE!

    Maybe a bantam...

    Not too big, not too small, unbelievably pretty. . . Yeah I'd go with a rare colored Polish if I were you. [​IMG]

    Crele, Tolbunt, White Crested Cuckoo, even Silver Laced are gorgeous.

    A color like this: pardon the wet crest, tail, and beard
