Wow, Sharon, he's a pretty roo!
Thanks! He's a good boy. I thought he was attacking me but he was trying to fly up to my arms so I would hold him. He likes his beard stroked till he goes to sleep. I read that with the crosses you take the cross hen and put back with the tolbunt roo...can I do anything with this cross roo?
He does look huge! I love how you pose your birds!
He had wanted me to hold him so I picked him up on my way to the studio...my daughter was setting up for a baby shoot! I need pics of my frizzle tolbunts but the roo lost some tail feathers a few days ago...not sure what is up with that? I wish to goodness that tolbunt hen would start laying. Polish take forever!
Nice lookin boy there!
Thanks guys! Illia, I have a question about his tail. I thought he was going to be wry tailed but most of the time he holds it fine. Sometimes though, like in the picture, he will flop off to the side. He wasn't happy about being on that box and seems like when he is unsure of something he drops his tail to the side. With wry tail...does it most always stay to the side?
Sharon, wry tail is a permanant carrying of tail to one side. If it doesnt happen often...I wouldnt consider it wry tail but it would be a Dq if your showing. It's genetic too caused by a recessive gene. If you breed him to a hen without wry tail and see it popping up...I wouldn't use him anymore ;(
It is not often that he does it. I know that with the tolbunt/GL crosses you take the hen from that and put her back with the tolbunt roo. Can I do that in reverse? Take the tolbunt/GL roo and put him with the tolbunt hen?
