    Wow! Beautiful! And they all get along? I really like the Welsummer roo - I hopefully have one all set up for the spring.

    The three marans roos get along very well. I put them all together when they were 9 weeks old. I picked up the copper marans roo awhile back to take off a legband, and the two others charged me when he started pitching a fit. They seem to look after one another fairly well. I hatched the welsummer roo from mothergoose's eggs in september. I really like his coloring.

    I think the Golden Marans is the most handsome rooster I have ever seen. A relative of mine in Herefordshire has about 6 of them wandering her yard. They were massive and just beautiful. Mine Marans here are nowhere near as big, although they may yet grow into it.
