    Actually, Rhett is still a cockerel at 15 1/2 weeks old. Lacy, a golden laced cochin hatched and raised him. He is from Speckled Hen's Dutch and Holly. He was the only one who hatched and I was so happy to finally have my male.


    Here he is with his "step broody mom", Lacy.

    and here he is, with black spots on his comb and wattles, from the "evil women pecking at him" as Cynthia says.

    Thanks, 4love... He is an "only chicken" and the girls really push him around, though not for long, lol.

    I was just going to suggest you post pics of our boy, Ellie! He's such a handsome guy. I think he'll look very much like my Dutchers. That is one sweet rooster and if he passed on his curious and calm nature to Rhett, you're in for a treat.

    Thanks, Cynthia, this is what I was hoping for... a sweet rooster like yours.
