    What's the best roo breed for:

    temperament?
    looks? (gotta be gorgeous? [​IMG]
    fertility?
    What sort of roos would make quiet, undercover city birds? [​IMG]

    Well, personally---I like my Golden Laced Cochins & my Lemon Blue Cochins for their looks & their sweetness. Also, my Light Brahmas are VERY nice birds, not to mention pretty!

    i have a nasty rir and br, if that is any help to you. they are aggressive with the ladies, but i don't know if that is because they are young. not too young because they are huge. they are ripping the feathers off my girls. br falls off but wont let go of her head and drags her around to where he wants her. he is getting a new home. so i don't suggest either of them. good luck

    you might should check into sumatras-Noisy (Talkative,) but crow only a few times a day... so you wouldn't have to worry about them disturbing neighbors much. MOST people like their looks, I've never heard of one being mean. they last VERY well in cold and hot heats, good layers, mothers, etc.. and as far as i know. good fertility,
