    Remember my babys from my post in January? They are growing so fast. The father is RIR and mother's vary from RIR, White Asiatic Braham, Buff Orington and Barred. So I know I have some mutts there all the same, just as lovelable. The white and Barred in the pictures are definitley Roosters. I have 6 more babies now that are Leghorns pullets about 10 to 11 weeks old. I now have a total of 25 and get 8 to 9 eggs a day. I'm so proud. [​IMG]

    Beautiful! The majority of our girls are Rhode Island Reds and Red Stars, we want to get a RIR Roo in the fall.., we are worried about aggresiveness so waiting for now. We have a 5 year old who is ALWAYS in the coop on her own.., I hate to take that away from her [​IMG]

    Is it true you can despur a Roo?

    As far as I know, yes. There are posts that talk about it. I never owned a rooster, so I can't speak for it myself.

    Beautiful birds! [​IMG]

    Quote:No not out of these yet, but the roo's are strutting there stuff already. These were born in Jan. The eggs I'm getting are out of the mama's and pappa's that are 2yrs old now. 2 RIR roosters and hen are 2 RIR, 2 Buffs, 2 Barred, 1 White Asian Braham which is in my avatar and two white game hens.
