    I think you have to raise them in pairs or something. You sure you don't want something a bit more tolerant? A flock of Orpingtons, maybe?

    while I haven't raised any pure asils before its exciting to see someone so excited about getting into them [​IMG] If you want to know what a dark asil looks like you need only look for pics of dark cornish. same pattern.
     
  4. Thanks for the addvice, but um, i don't really like opingtons very much, too fat. i'm going to get about 3 or 4 of them, 1 male and 2 or 3 females.[​IMG]

    I hear you can not raise males together. they wanna scrap, hence their breed! not docile and i would research them better. folk lord says one roo snapped a mans wrist. Does that mean they all mean...no! But google them and read up!
    They are game fowl........
