    Hello Everyone,
    I just wanted to see all of the roo's!
    Just this afternoon I went to pick up my pullet, Raven, a Black Australorp and I saw a GIANT ROO like.... 2 1/2 feet tall!

    Just beautiful bird! Excellent color! NOW I WANT TO SEE YOURS!

    I will grade on February 1, sorry no prize.

    This is "Phoenix", our 10 month old crele Chantecler cockerel. I haven't weighed him, but he is a brick house! (In the photos, he's in a labrador-sized dog crate...to give you a size reference).

    seen some asking about height. The fencing is 4" sections. In this pic he is effortlessly standing 22". And could easily stand another 2 inches taller IF he stands up.

    Yep, I certainly think this would be a nice topic to show off chickens with, however I'd love it if people mention height and weight.

    I'm gonna go weigh my Shamo before I show him. . . All I know is that he certainly won't win anything YET, but give him a few months. . . [​IMG]
