    Hello! I was sitting here thinking about how much Jasper has grown and gained featherage and color. Some of oyu may know about Jasper being a rescue (For more info in that, see my page) and having bad scaly leg mites. Well, he has really gotten much prettier and is now also the daddy of 5 chicks! I marvel at how much his tail feathers have grown! His legs are almost back to normal after treatment with Vaseline. He occasionaly lets you get close enough to pet him and is more sociable. n We were told that he was RIR... as you can see he's not. WIth the help of all of you wonderful people here on BYC, we figured out that he is a beautiful Delaware! He definatly grew with the proper nutrition! He is about 1 year and 9 months old. I had him for 6 months so far. Hard work really pays off! Enjoy the pics and please comment!

    Who wants to see a picture from 5 months ago? He looked bad. Then, you can compare it.

    He is beautiful!! Is he purebred Delaware or a mix of some kind? You did a very good job cleaning him up and healing his leg mites!! He looks a whole lot different! Good job and good luck!
