I thought I picked out 4 little pullets to add to my flock. Ooops! Fausty first started getting a more pronounced comb and wattles. I thought ok, maybe just a fast maturing hen. Wrong! Little Fausty (who is smaller than Dorothy) I noticed had some cream colored feathers coming in on "her" back. Today I looked at them and they are saddle feathers. I don't think saddle feathers can be on a hen. Or can they? How do I choose which cockerel to eat? I don't want more hens at this point, so 3 cockerels is out of the question. He is going to be a very pretty designer roo. He has a nice green tail, mottled grey and white on his legs, looks like he is wearing pants. And with this cream, he'll be a sharp-dressed roo. I wouldn't mind keeping him, especially since he has the feathered feet. Will he get bigger than the hens? He is a lttle fella (by comparison) right now. But his daddy was a huge roo. He is smaller than Dorothy who is his sister - same age. - the lady said. I like the idea of a back-up roo, as when the predators got my last ones, they started with the roo. I love having a sweet roo.
