    Hi all. Grew up on a farm and got chickens by default-a banty and turken hens popped out of the the ramp when the truck came to load cattle for market. My dad hated chickens. The neighbors gave me a rooster and after 50+ chickens they were removed by another neighbor lol. Fast forward 40 years and I'm back to chickens. Assorted dual purpose. Love them. Didn't remember what individual personalities chickens have. Great entertainment and people love the eggs. Win-win.

    So I traded a nice old guy 2 RIR buff orpington crosses for 2 of these sight unseen. What are they? Banty size and disposition, almost black comb and wattles.

    He wanted eggs so these obviously wouldn't work lol. These roosters are beautiful but terrible personalities compared to my big dual purpose.
