His wattles are so big! 🤣❤️
Not really, I have roosters/cockerels with bigger wattles.

I read somewhere that hens are attracted to Cocks with big wattles. IDK
Combs also.

But comb, & wattles once taken away don't have an effect on a cocks breeding rights. Really. This is from experience of those who raise American Games.

From that information, wattles, & combs don't matter to a hen.

I do notice that the roosters seem more attracted to the hens with prettier feather patterns. 🤣

They also tend to like chickens that look like themselves.
I have one group of French Black Copper Marans that hang together. 2 Blue laced red wyandottes and one French Blue Copper Marans that hang together and 2 splash wyandottes that hang together. Go figure!
