    I know roosters and boys are usually unwanted, especially in the city/urban areas, but i really wish i could have one, and even if i cant i would love to admire some. Do you have any lovely, fancy, handsome roosters, or know any breeds that are stunning? If so, post away! Pics and links are always welcome!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I am hoping to get a Serama roo soon. Very tiny and many have little squeeky crows...

    Here is 7 of the about 30 Araucana roosters I have. It is like a symphony every morning. We are all at the point that we don't hear them till we get up for the day. LOL!! Of course when the baby roos start to crow, that can wake you up. They sound like something is broken or being attacked. I have a pen of babies behind our bedroom. When one starts to learn to crow, that is my signal that they need to be moved to a pen farther from us and the new babies can move into theirs.


    I love all their tailless behinds.

    Roosters, can't live without 'em. [​IMG] Here's some of my fancier boys.



    There's Polish in crazy colors like Tolbunt.

    Marans in fashionable colors like Blue Wheaten.

    And Araucanas with their tufts and some have very pretty colors.

    Iowa Blue roo (spring 2011 hatch)
    [​IMG]

    Was told this was a Bantam pullet when I got it, but turned out to be a roo and I think he's too big to be a Banty, so unsure of breed (spring 2010 hatch)
