    Our 3-year-old Buff Orpington rooster still has a lot of spunk left in him, but we are replacing him with a new cockerel to add new blood to the flock and to the hatching eggs we offer for sale. Here is our new 5-month-old cockerel hatched from eggs from Hinkjc! He is currently in with the hens, but he is not crowing or mating... yet. Once we observe him doing so, our older roo will be placed at a new home. He has a nice, rich Buff color with no smut. He is looking like a nice looking fellow so far. He hasn't been given a name, so suggestions are welcome.

    Thanks for the name suggestions everybody! We have decided on the name "Midas" since it seems to fit him best. [​IMG]
