    I adore our roosters they have so much personality. We have four full sized Roosters, however Kramer is a Giant. Here he is Last weekend in our coop.

    Even though he is over twice the size of our others he is still gentle and though he would prefer to not be picked up he tolerates it well and will let you hold him and pet his beak.

    My DH wants to eat him. He has since he was a couple months old. Him and Kramer don't get along well, especially since he keeps flying up to the top shelf in the coop and blowing out the light bulb with his big wings.

    Still Kramer has a place here for a few years at least

    I would love to see pictures of other huge roosters! They are such cool guys.

    Here is my big rooster. His name is Goober. He would have been our neighbors supper if we hadn't had went and caught him and 7 other's (not all roos). Now they are all safe in my backyard. Goober has adjusted well and is now eating out of our hands.

    Here's my bjg Brucey aka Bruce Lee. I wish I had a better pic of him, but he's not very sociable. I call him bruce lee because he has a killer jumping front kick. He' s pretty big , it's hard to tell in the pic,but he is standing on a 5 gal bucket and those are year old Turkens in with him.[​IMG]

    Wow those are some big roosters. Do you know how much Suede weighs??? I have been wanting to weigh Kramer for a while but havn't thought of a reliable way to do it.

    He is a Red Sex Link

    Here is my big boy Cornelius. He may not be large in size but he makes up for it in personality! Does that count?
