    I am looking for a rooster (>2 yrs old) for a breeding project. The chickens I already have are only 3months old. I can't have a project without the right rooster. He needs to have a small/low comb (rose, cushion, pea, walnut), no white/silver bloodlines. He can be a cross, but would prefer a single bloodline. Pet/hatchery quality is fine, as long as he has no major flaws that would show in his offspring (and of course no disease/illness). I posted a thread under the wanted section, but I don't know how well that is going to work, because I don't want to travel far for one rooster. I do have alternative, but he is of Game stock and I would like to use standard poultry so I won't have to keep the offspring male all in separate pens. I can't just order one chick, so any help would be appreciated.

    Bailey, Mississippi.
    You know, I'm curious... What all breeds do we have? Is there a way the OP could use a poll? Or someone could keep track? For the longest time I have thought and said that Mississippi is very behind breed wise, and had only the popular egg layers (Leghorn, Dominique, Rocks, Rhode Island Reds, Australorps), Silkies, American Games, Old English Game Bantams, Easter Eggers, and mutts. All I've noticed so far is pretty poor in quality in terms of show wise (not meaning any disrespect to anyone). I based this upon observation, and how I could rarely find poultry breeders in MS unless it were the American games, so my Shamos and Old English Game Bantams (to get quality ones) were from out of state.

    I have noticed an increase in breeds, such as people picking up frizzles and Cochins. And the occasional Sumatra from hatcheries or possibly here on BYC. But what else maybe lurking around I just haven't ran up on? It'd be nice to get some of the fellow Mississippians to have a conversation here and there, threads been in the dark for awhile.
