    Here's our Big guy. He's so pretty, but when he starts displaying, he's missing all but two tail feathers. lol! He's so pretty but goofy looking at the same time. hehehe

    Not sure if he's a BBB or just a Standerd Bronze. I don't know the difference between the two.
    Also, in the first picture, there is a Bourban red. we aren't sure if that's a female or male.

    He looks like a BBB in the picture. How old is he ?

    I think he's around 5-6 months old.

    A BB at 5 or 6 months is ready for the table and weighs in the neighborhood of 45 to 55 lbs. if he is a standard he'll only be about half grown and weigh about 25 to 30 pounds, roughly. He's a handsome bird! Congratulations and thanks for sharing![​IMG]

    He's about 25lb. He's a big boy and he's so funny. Today, we had a neighbor come by to get some water since hurricane Sandy hit, our neighbor hasn't had electric and we do. While we where filling up the buckets of water, our big guy started to gobble. [​IMG]

    They are the most curious animals I have ever raised. Even more than kids! [​IMG]
