I lost a spangled OE hen recently, and just coincidentally, someone local was getting rid of a roo and four young hens. They are all under a year old, the hens aren't laying yet. The roo is a spangled OE, but the hens are not, but that's okay. Its still such a shame that I lost that spangled girl because she and this rooster would have had some beautiful babies! But I can't be more thrilled with how pretty, and how sweet this guy is! Its making the loss of my little girl a little easier to get over.
