  1. I was just looking at Cinnamon and she is starting to look a lot like a roo to me? Am I right or wrong?

    Cinnamon is about 3 months old and is huge compared to her other flock mates!

  7. Thanks everyone for confirming it. I guess I will just have to wait and see what kind of roo he turns out to be, if he is nice to all the girls he can stay, if he is mean, well we will have to see.
    Anyone know if EE's make good roo;s?

    We had one that kept us guessing for a long time. Didn't seem to henny or too roostery. I called it the "don't ask, don't tell" chicken. But then one morning it started crowing. Mystery solved.

    My dominant roo, Carl, is and has been an excellent rooster for the past three and a half years (he is four years old). He treats the ladies well, keeps a look out for danger, and is respectful to me and visitors.

    EE roosters are generally gorgeous, too. As is my Carl. ;)
