    He's a beauty! Looks healthy, too! He'll really look flashy once his tail feathers grow in.

    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!! [​IMG]

    I guess I should also mention they are in a 30 x 50 fenced in yard and access to a 1.5 acre yard!

    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 [​IMG]

    Have fun with your lovely roo! He is going to be gorgeous once that tail is filled out!
