    Debating which one to keep for winter. Perceval is 7 mos. old and Paul is 18 mos. Any ideas? Comments? I have 12 hens.

    Purely for looks, I think Paul has nicer coloring. Are they both good tempered and good to your hens? How they treat the girls would be a big factor for me.

    Thank you for your comment. I think Paul is the better of the two also because the other has no blue through his wing feathers. He is good to his hens although he does have a few he over breeds. They were raised with him since little peeps. His fertility rate is 80% with the twelve girls. Sometimes lately he gets testy with me but I believe its because the younger cockerel is trying to breed the 8 month old pullets. So Paul is stressed. They all free range in a fenced acre. No fights yet. Thank you for feed back.
