    Let's see 'em everyone! All sizes, shapes and colors! I love the incredible masculine beauty of glorious roosters! Share your pics here! I'll start...


    I am 11 weeks into owning my first personal flock of chickens, so none are all that glorious or masculine yet. This is JB (short for Johnny Bravo), my big man on campus right now. He is a Cuckoo Marans cockerel, started crowing at 8 weeks and started trying to breed the pullets at 10 weeks. This pic is at 10.5 weeks old:

    Oh goody!!!! I just [​IMG] roosters!!!! [​IMG]

    Let's see, I will start with my mother's rooster. I hatched his little mutt rear so I have a special fondness for him. His father was a BSL, mother was an EE. His name is Starla (and he is alright with that!!! [​IMG] )

    [​IMG]

    Next is my Bantam EE roo Edward. Such a sweetheart and soooooo pretty.

    [​IMG]

    Here is my BLRW roo, Hansel. He is just a dream rooster. Sweet, good to his girls, very protective, and great with me and the kids. I thought the pic of him shaking was cute. [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Last and well....least. My baby La Fleche roo Edgar (Allen Poe). He is such a good boy.

    [​IMG]

    Here is a cruddy cell phone pic of him kissing one of his baby hens, Erzsebet. This pic just melts me!!!

    Writerofwords - Popcorn is my favorite, but I have loved reading your stories on other posts about Popcorn AND Nugget! Thanks for sharing!

    Luvmychknkids - Hansel is GORGEOUS! His coloring is so awesome!! Mr. Starla (love the name) is also quite stunning!

    Chicken Girl - You have quite a big, strong man there! I love, big, burly, manly, fluffy roosters!'

    I am so encouraged by this thread. I have an unruly rooster who attacks me. I am trying to work up the courage to dispatch him and put him in the freezer for coc au vin. His name is General Cotton. I believe he is an Amber Star. We have an Amber Star hen, too. She is just as nasty. She bites! Cotton is pretty, but not as glorious as some. He does take his job VERY seriously.

    I have to post one of my new roos. They are 7 weeks old and going through their awkward stage. They spar and have stare downs. They are hilarious. Here is the Salmon Faverolle. He is destined to be beautiful, but not right now! Isn't he funny looking!

    GCKiddHouse -

    What breed is your unruly boy? (sorry, I'm still kind of new to chickens, so if it's obvious, I apologize...) My JB makes me worry a bit already... I picked up one of "his" girls today and she sqwuaked a bit and he got pretty upset with me - got all fluffy and flapped his wings and stared me down, so I kicked my leg toward him and threw a piece of bread at him to let him know I wouldn't tolerate it. So then he got up on a perch in front of me and started crowing over and over at me. When I put "his" girl down, he immediately ran over and tried to mount her. I shooed him away since I've heard you're not supposed to let dominant roosters breed in front of you. I Really want to keep him so I hope he doesn't get mean! I feel your pain...

    I love salmon Faverolles! He will be beautiful! You should come back and post here when he is older so we can see!

    ChickenLittle32 - Your baby golden campine boy has beautiful colors! I bet he'll be stunning! You should come back here and post more pics as he gets older!

    Everybody - MORE MORE!!

    Quote:He is an Amber Star from what I have gathered. The feed store sold him to me as a Cal. White, which he is not. I just edited my previous post to include his breed and his name as I realized I had forgotten them.

    We are not likely to keep the Salmon Faverolle. But we will raise him and see how beautiful he gets. We have 6 or 7 little roos running around. Once they get crowing, I think we will be in a hurry to do something!! We want to keep one of the Golden Cuckoo Marans. I will have to get some video of the little guys sparing and post it.
