    This is Maxine, our very dominant hen. I think she is a Dominique. She's a good layer.

    This is Dennis, our very large, very clumsy and very gentle BLRW roo. He's also a pig. I hope his manners improve or the ladies won't like him much.

    Your babies are beautiful. I also have a Buff Laced Polish. He is just so dumb but loveable. Your BLRW's are very striking.

    I love the look on that EE's face as she's looking at John Robert. It's like she's thinking, "why you gotta be so loud?" [​IMG]

    Thanks Ruth, I think they are too light. I like the darker blue ones but I got them from Mcmurray and certainly had no expectations as to color and quality - just hoping for healthy birds and the right sexes that I ordered. They got that part perfect. I don't know that I'll end up keeping all the roos. So far everyone gets along great. John Robert is not particularly aggressive and is wonderful with the hens. He's warming up to me slowly. I like to snag him every once in a while to hug, pet and sweet talk him. He's adorable. His eyes are round and gentle, not intense and fierce looking like many roos.

    Quote:Hey Southern, He's not really very loud. I had a choice between several roos from a friend and picked him cuz he was the least loud. He usually isn't even crowing by 10:00. I just wound him up so I could get a crowing shot. lol! most times I can't even get that to work. I think he was showing off. heeheehee.
