    Rhodey is my RIR rooster that is 13 wks. old now. I can't believe how big he has gotten! He is such a good boy and is getting gorgeous, but of course I'm partial! I'm anxious to see how big he does get. [​IMG]

    He is on my 12 year-olds shoulder here.

    Such a good boy to pose for the camera!

    Running away to check on all of his girls!

    WOW!! He is gorgeous! Well I hope ROSE ends up like him! (seeing as I have to adjust to Rose being a Roo)

    Wow, he's big! My black orp is about that big, it's amazing! I have Jersey Giants that are supposed to be big, and if they get bigger, I'll have to worry about being eaten by a giant chicken. [​IMG]

    Thank you all! I'm very pleased with the way he is turning out. [​IMG]

    You are the second person who has asked that same question about what I'm feeding him, lovemychicks9! [​IMG]

    He is certainly a handsome boy. You think he is big? Wait until some of your bbs orp boys grow out. He will not look so big any more. LOL
