    I have shown this Very large Red Bourbon Hen to Celie and she is just getting bigger she is bigger than any of my Toms.
    she is 2 to 3 times the size of my Turkey Hens.
    I thought for the longest time she was a he but has a short snood no carbuncles and a head that is the shape of a hen I also have never seen her display like the Toms do.
    You Know what they say if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck it must be a duck well in this case its one BIG dang Hen.
    She also the friendliest of the Hens.
    I got these all at the same time 3 days old from Mail order Cackle Hatchery.

    Henzilla! Gotta love her name! She is a pretty gal.

    Are you thinking of keeping her as a breeder or platter her for a great dinner?

    Frank, You better keep her, I want some of her EGGS. It would be a waste of a fantastic gene pool to slaughter HER!! Just FEED HER, Seymour ![​IMG]

    I agree as long as she can be mated with and she does not crush the eggs.
     
  7. Yep she has earned a place in the keeper section and I will cross my fingers and hope I can get some good egg production from her.
    If she turns out to be a egg cracker I will Incubate them and Yes Celie I will do my best to get you some of her eggs I just hope the Toms are not Intimidated by her size other wise there will no fertile eggs [​IMG]

    And here is wishing everyone a MERRY Christmas.
