    All roos?! Bummer. But, on the plus side, you now have an excuse to get some more chicks! [​IMG]

    I know! [​IMG] I might decide to go with some older ones that the sex is already known on them??? So far all of the roo's are getting along OK. Only some minor spats here & there but no real knock down, drag outs. I will keep them all unless they would not get along and then I will have to think about maybe rehoming. [​IMG] But no real issues yet and they just turned 4 months old!!!

    Sure....I will try and get some new pics tomorrow. They are so darn hard to get a good pic because their heads never stay stil [​IMG]
    I do have 24 hens right now with the hopes ojf adding a silkie hen or two. My black splash claimed my new orp hens as his....he just loves them. I also have naked necks, white and brown leghorns, andalusians and EE hens.
