    Wish you were closer, I have a nice blue boy that I don't need. He needs a little more of a beard for my taste and a bit more foot feathering. But still nice.

    I have 2 year old that I am going to sell at auction this week. he looks a little rough right now due to the bad rain weather we had. He makes awesome chicks. He has turned out a lot of SQ chicks with the hens I had him with. I have pics of him if interested. His comb is large is his only physical flaw. He has a personality flaw that I have overlooked since I had him confined. He will try to flog. he is not big enough to hurt an adult but I would let my children in the pen with him. 20 dollars plus shipping and box gets him. I am selling out of my silkies.

    This is him at about 1 year. He still has a huge tush. He looks like he may go thru a molt. He has a very large crest. Not so pretty right at the moment since we have been through 17 inches of rain this last week.
    These are pullets hatched from him last year.

    WOW! He has a badonkadonk tush! Thank you for the pics. I hope to find a roo closer to home that I can pick up. Shipping is so expensive. He does make pretty babies. Good luck with your auction!

    Quote:Thanks for the reply. This is the kind of roo I am looking for. He would be beautiful with my splash silkie girls, I just hate to pay $65 for shipping. I would rather put the money in the quality of the rooster and not the shipping. I know, I sound like a tightwad!![​IMG] Hope to find this kind of roo in reasonable pick-up distance.
