  1. I know a lot of variables go into determining the best roo for the job of flock master, and father for my future fluffy butts. But I have been in love with this guy since he was 4 weeks old. I knew he was a roo that day, while the others hid their secret from me a lot longer.


    Introducing, FlockMaster and Commander Russell Crowes
    (incidentally, he does not yet crow, at 13 weeks)

    Lol, well honesty is a good trait in a man. At least he was up front about it. Pretty boy!
  3. Thank you, Shannon. I couldn't agree more!!!
    (with either of those statements!)

  5. Thank you, <3 ChickenForever ! I am pretty partial, tho!
    I am hoping to find some homes for his brothers, before D Day...they are just as beautiful, if anybody in the 541 needs a new friend!

    Good luck with the new cockerel. He will make some mistakes along the way just be patient with him. A good roo makes the flock & eases some pressure of predator attacks no guarantee but there's is no guarantees in life.
  9. Thanks 7L Farm. I will keep that in mind.
    Brightest Blessings!
