I agree that Marvin will be one favored little cockerel. But so what ! Big news here in the furnace blast shadows of Death Valley CA . Nava's brood have finally started to lay weeks later that the pullets who live where it is degrees cooler in temperature. All of them including the one male look very healthy and sooooo pretty. The boy is black and hugh. Since I lost my Red Laced Blue, I am almost sad that I gave that black boy away. But I am hoping that my Gold Laced Polish boy will grow up to be my main man. So far he is rather shy and slow to grow but gets along well with the birdies that he lives with. Maybe the "slow boys turn out to be good boys". I don't know since I have not been able to live in a place where I can grow out rooster for so long that I can not judge this issue. I do know that gold laced polish grow nicer looking with age so I can hope that his personality will be similar.
