    I got him a very good friend of mine. He attacked her sons daughter and her husband. So she penned him up and now hes a big baby. She gave him to me because he attacked people but since hes a baby I took him. He doesnt attack anything. He runs from everything and since he gets picked on by everybody I have made him his own little area in the rafters of my coop right above the door. He likes up up there and no one can get him up there. Here he is. Oh and please let me know about his quality. I have no idea what he should look like. :

    Give him time..... his attitude will come back [​IMG] They just naturally have a lot of tude, although most of mine are scared y cats when confronted, it's when you turn your back..... Good thing they are so small. [​IMG]

    That's why I have BAd BArt as my Decal/Sign model for this sign on my site...... [​IMG]

    SO true - my german shepherd turns his back on my little d'anver roo, and Hercules runs right up to him feet first ready to kill with those little toes...............

    chickenzoo have you had expierence with the breed?
    this is my first one and he is soo scared of everything he acts almost sick. he looks fine but he walks real slow and can barley fly. before when he was at my friends house he slept outside with his two guinea buddys high in a tree. so i know he can fly. he doesnt shut his eyes all the time. there always open, looking around at everything he just is a big wuss now. how long do you think it will take him to not be scared of everything?
