    Try copy and pasting the URL from the webpage. If it is a craigslist ad, I think the nh will be after the craigslist.com portion.

    Thankyou! I see I didn't put a period after the nh. Anyways, I'm thinking of getting him. What do you think?

    I think he would make a great breeder for you. I would definatley take him.
    He is a very nice looking roo. A great color to add to your flock to experiment with and I bet you would even
    get some cuckoo out of him.

    Not cuckoo. He is grey, which is silver penciled, and is the pattern you are seeing. However he also has red leakage, which is not a good thing for a grey. Nevertheless, he is a handsome bird, quite typey and looks to have very soft feathering.
