    well here are my 2 BR bsbies - Maverick and Annabelle.

    Maverick is so sweet he will let me pick him up and carry him around all day, such a sweet calm boy.

    Annabelle is a little nut case - flighty and really does not like being held much, but she will let me hold her once I get her.

    So far I dont see any saddle feathers and he has not tried crowing yet....
    funny things is Maverick is the darker one and Annabelle is a real light color.

    Maverick - sorry a little blurry he kept trying to jump off the couch and explore

    Aw, I love my BR roosters! Many here will remember I had one named Maverick, too! Here's my Maverick-hope yours will stay as sweet as mine was. I sold him so he could have his own harem of lovely ladies to a lady in Alabama.

    Maverick and Annabelle joined our family April - 23 -- I think they were about 1-2 days old when we got them from TSC.

    hard to believe I have only had them here for a month - they really do look older than that.

    Cyn -- your Maverick was a very handsome roo - I cant wait till my little man gets his saddle feathers and starts to look more grown up.

    I have been holding him daily and carry him around the yard hope that keeps him as sweet as he is now.

    After reading about so many wonerful BR roo's I was hoping that when I went to TSC I would get me one ( I think its the only time I was hoping to get a roo ).

    Julie, I have had wonderful experiences with Barred Rock boys. There are always exceptions, but by and large, they are one of the great breeds in the roosters, IMO. (Oh, I got your envelope today-thanks!).

    They do look so healthy! I wish I had some BR. I've heard such wonderful things about the breed. I knew they were dependable layers, but it's good to know that the roos have good dispositions.

    Good to see you posting again, Julie! [​IMG]

    How's your breeder's coop coming along?

    well my breeding pens have to put on hold right now -- with the pulled muscle in my back it is making breathing hard - let alone anything else,, plus DH has second degree sunburn on his legs from a weekend of fishing in shorts and forgetting his sunblock !

    right now I have one lagre main layer run/coop -- and hopefully this weekend I will be able to get another coop done in a smaller run that is 10 foot wide 31 feet long and the coop will be 10 foot by 5 foot

    my banty's are going in it and at some point we will be adding a coop at the other end and spilting that pen in half

    I have 10 cochin banty's that hatched on mothers day - 3 turned out to be frizzle [​IMG] so we will be doing some breeding with them.

    I have to see what hatches out of the blue orp eggs my broody is sitting if I get 1 roo and 3 pullets a pen will be made for them also - but we will wait and see. she is on day 19 today

    I managed to get a hoop coop done that is 9 feet long by 3 feet wide that has a small coop attached that Maverick and a few others are in right now until they are older

    so things have been very busy - painful and busy LOL
