    We are looking for a nice big RIR rooster. Our hens just started laying and we'd like to get some fertile eggs.

    B&B where are you located?

    and Don we have 20 EE chicks and several roos to chose from. They are about 4 weeks old and are looking like they are Americanas. The 4 rumpless ones (I guess making them Aracaunas)we have appear to be hens and no roos. We 'd gladly let you take your pick for a RIR roo. We have 8 hens that are laying and no roo to do the deed so that I can hatch my own chicks

    I think hubby wants to keep the rumpless right now but he does tend to change his mind alot. That's how we ended up with 21 rabbits instead of the 2 he said he'd be happy with:he

    We went to the auction last week and the roos were going for ridiculous money. So hubby bought 2 more rabbits:ya He is banned from the auction for now lol.

    age doesn't really matter as long as Mr can still get the job done. Our girls have only been laying for about 1 1/2 months now so we can be patient and wait for Mr to mature a bit
