    I just want to show off this rooster. He is a Thai / W. Leghorn cross that was in a clutch I hatched for eating but thought this guy was too special.
    I think he is one of the prettiest roosters I've ever seen! He is about 8 months old.

    I forgot to mention he is a super friendly guy too. When he was younger he would come up into the house and eat the dog food crumbles that were spilled around the food bowls and I would have to chase him off the counters cause he was looking everywhere for more food. One time I was taking the breasts off a chicken and I had to leave the room for a minute. I heard a thud...thud and I knew he jumped on the counter and stole the breast. I had to chase him all over the yard to get my chicken breast back. He doesn't come up anymore though now that he has built relations with the girls.

    He is a cool looking rooster. I'm glad he is friendly, because he looks really big. How tall is he? When he stands next to you, is the top of his head above your knee?

    I just recently re-homed him. He was beautiful but I have too many roo's and he wasn't going to fit into the breeding program.

    He came up to just past my knee and he was a heavy bird.

    I'm glad you found another home for him, since you couldn't keep him yourself.
