    Skeeter, Rusty looks like my rooster Moe who is a game roo. Rusty sure is a purdy boy.

    They look wonderful, Lori! The splash girl is Snow, formerly Lynn's, right? You mentioned the size difference. I always thought of Scout as lanky, lean and long legged, but one day my DH remarked on how much he'd filled out, that he was almost as large as Hawkeye. Don't know why I hadn't noticed, but sure enough, he's gotten to be an impressive size right under my nose.

    What great colors! Rusty La Roo just shines. All of them look healthy, a nice flock.

    Thanks, guys!

    Yep, Cyn, that's Snow alright! I'm thinking the cockerel will fill out as he matures. He's pretty big, but still a bit gangly! He's also very tame. One of the pullets is laying - the eggs are a beautiful blue. I'm going to try to hatch a few pretty soon.

    Countrygirl, Rusty's dad is some kind of longtail, and his mom is like a Red Star or something. He's a big boy and very sweet. Aren't games kinda small? Do you have any pics?

    [​IMG] They look great Lori! I was hoping you would post pics of your flock. I just love the rooster pics. Since I can't have one, I will just have to live vicariously through others, LOL.

    The Ameraucanas look happy and comfortable with each other...I am glad the girls have a roo. Maybe he can get them to settle down! [​IMG]

    I do not know much about the APA standards for that breed, but , to me, that cockerel sure looks like a show stopper.
