    Yes I love his Comb as well, Its weird the way his Barring is looking though. As a youngster he had such perfect Barring and now it looks so Broken up! Hopefully he makes good looking babies soon! lol. Cynthia, in case your wondering, Tux is from Amanda's Big Egg you sent! [​IMG]

    Hi, Lanissa. You know, Tux has a nice comb and a nice balanced head. His barring is a bit messy. You never know how that will come out. Some of Hawkeye and Dutch's sons have excellent barring, but Tux's is more like Zane's and Hawkeye's. Even then, he's a handsome boy. Dutch is his daddy.
    Those girls do look close to laying; I forget, how old are they now? If you look at FrontPorchIndiana's rooster, Bob, he is Hawkeye's son and his barring is really great, so it just varies. Dutch's is good, but Zane's and Mace's are a messy/cuckoo. If you aren't showing, no problem. How is his temperament?

    Cyn, his Temperment is wonderful so Far. No problems he is a sweethheart and great with the ladies, all though I have not seen him dance for them or anything else with them. I thought for sure he was of age to be more interested in them. They are about 22 weeks old now. I sure hope they are close! I sure have seen pics of Bob as well and my my That is a Handsome Fella! Glad you got the chance to see your granbabies! The 2 BR girls names are Betty and Hilda like the show "Ugly Betty". Betty has the messy comb and Hilda has the straight comb. [​IMG]
