    Looking to rehome a few Roos! 3 of them are 4 mths old (hatched them myself born jan 22) the other we got in a straight run last fall and based on size at the time I'm guessing was 1-2 mths old as we didn't know sex till awhile later lol,(not the father of the 4mth olds) I also suspect I have at least 3 more in my march hatch. But I'll post them later when we know for sure. I've decided to just keep the hens so all the boys must go! The older Roos (including the father Unique) were culled about 2 months ago as they were running my layers nearly to death. I really don't want to cull these as I am more emotionally attached to them...

    The black/white crested also has 5 toes on each foot!
    I have pics of the parents (hens are on site, were segregated with roo no clue what he is other then very unique and we thought HE was a she at first when we got HIM. (I've learned a lot since last fall lol)the boys all take after their dad, the moms are buff orphingtons)
