    Your cant see his colour here coz he is in the shade.
    His colour is a brilliant red.

    Your hens didn't attack him? I tried putting my new young roo in and it didn't work - they attacked him and gave him a bloody comb and wattle. Maybe he's too young? 17 weeks?
    How old is yours?

    My guy is about 10mths old.
    The hens had never seen a big roo before so it came as a shock that unlike the banty roo he wasnt going to take any nonsense.

    some of the hens are still in pretty bad shape from when i got them for the eff factory but they are getting better [​IMG]
    Feathers are growing back and they are enjoying their days out picking.
