I'm in Oswego county, near lake Ontario. Half way between Watertown and Syracuse. My rooster came from a breeder that shows them. Mine are pets as I know nothing about showing. These are beautiful birds. My rooster is very sweet. He "mothered" my 4 pullets showing them the ropes. He takes good care of his girls. He and his hen hatched all 14 of the eggs that she laid. (The 4 pullets kept him busy for 21 days). He's not agressive towards people and he's a pleasure to care for. (actually he does more for me than I do for him). Bug control..hawk alert..crowd control (with the young cockerals). I paid $25. for him and he's worth every penny. I'd like to get $7. for his sons. negotiable for more than one.
