    And if you use him for more than one of those things, just vote your main use then post the rest! I was stupid and didn't put multiple choice down..... stupid me lol. I was gonna make a #3 but that would be just to much work....... HAHA

    Nothing like a pretty rooster to look at.
    But, I use them for breeding, selling, and meat on occasion.

    Here's one of my current ones:

    This one is a Blue-Tailed Red.
    Dad: Blue/Red Splash Easter Egger
    Mom: Red Naked Neck
    I've currently got him covering some Red Sex Link hens, trying to see if I can get more Blue-Tailed Reds.

    I love Roosters, all breeds and colors.

    I keep way to many to just use them for breeding, many are beloved pets, a few are guards, some are just nice to look at, but we also use them for meat when "to many" gets to be "THERE ARE TO MANY DANG ROOS AROUND HERE!".
