Picked him up Friday. Exactly what my wife was looking for!
He's a beauty! Looks healthy, too! He'll really look flashy once his tail feathers grow in.
he's nice lookin. I need to check CL.
We where told he is nine months old. Was in a small coop with another roo and one hen, all roughly the same age. He will now be the only roo with 10 hens all is own!!
I guess I should also mention they are in a 30 x 50 fenced in yard and access to a 1.5 acre yard!
Quote:May your new handsome roo have a long and happy life!
You know for reliable fertialization rates you need a 4-5 to 1 girls to boys right?
and i like his looks too
I have one from cl that looks like him just 3 years old and bigger was told hes a welsummer.
Quote:Yes, we know this rule-of-thumb. We have him more for flock protection and his cool looks!
I think it depends on the roo as to the fertilization ratios - our large cochin kept his 12 hens well covered, we had 100% fertility with him
Have fun with your lovely roo! He is going to be gorgeous once that tail is filled out!
