    This is Bob. I snapped this shot of him today. He was shaking his head in the picture, his comb isn't really flipped over like that.

    How much so you think he weighs. I might be intrested in buying some in the future.

    I don't know, he's really big boy. I'd recommend contacting SpeckledHen for eggs. She has Bob's brother and I think she has a better selection of hens than I do.

    Christine, he looks just like Hawkeye and Bob's brother, Dutch! Wow, what a looker! Those made me miss Hawkeye so much. You just dont get that broad chested build in many hatchery birds these days. And Bob's barring is wonderful in the saddle area! Amazing boy. Dutch is the exact image of his daddy, but without poor Hawkeye's battle scars from his former life. I think Dutch will produce babies just like Bob, especially with my big bodied BR hens!
