    This is Snack. He's about 3 years. I dont know his breed. His tail used to have a couple of really long feathers but for some reason he lost them over winter and they never came back. He is a little mean thing. Even tried to attack my 250cc Scooter! Behind him is his favourite and only hen left (the rest died from multiple reasons, Possum, car, etc.)

    This is Coffee and two of his girls. Im told he's a Crele Old English Game Roo. They are all about 2 1/2 months old. He just started crowing at me today. So pathetic sounding but he is a beauty. The girl on the left (Silver Leghorn) is Bacon and the girl on the right is either Toast or Hashbrowns (I think Toast though). Bacon is his favourite hen. He's half the size (or less) of Snack but he so far seems to be keeping his 4 females, the Silver, two Reds and a cornish X (for now...)

    Heres a close up of Coffee and his favourite hen. He looks more rust coloured on these photos but his "red" is more a lemon yellow on the neck and a light rust colour on his wings. Hes a pretty little thing [​IMG]

    Danke! I think its funny too that it seems I get hens and a couple of Bantams and the Bantams always turn out to be the Roos! LOL So Im stuck with shorty roosters! XD Hey but I dont know about Coffee yet (He seems a little fraidy-chicken) but Snack can get rowdy on someone/something coming near his hen!

    Thanks!! Yeah I name my chickens weird names.

    My first set were all food times: Breakfast (RIP-Possum), Lunch (Snacks Hen), Dinner (RIP-Dog played too rough), Snack (Roo), and Nummy-Numm (RIP- Car , My nephew who was 3 at the time gave her this name)

    The second set are all named after breakfast foods: Coffee (Because hes a little spot of a thing LOL), Bacon (She was striped as a baby), Toast (Red one with "burnt" edges), Hashbrowns (Red with yellowed edges), Biscuits (White Cornish X - soon to be RIP),
    326and Eggs (White Cornish X RIP - "Natural causes")

    Ill never buy Cornish X again [​IMG] Too sad and I love my little guys!
