    Sorry I am not sure about how to say it either...

    I call them Fav-roll-lays??

    BUT I do have two of them.

    They are sweet birds. I really like mine and if I had more room I would add another 10 to my flock and a roo. If you can have a rooster they are huge STUNNING birds to look at!! The roos at our local feedstore are sweethearts too. I almost bought one of them. I was worried about the crowing even though the employees had never heard him crow more then twice.

    This is Suz, not Jess.....Just my own two cents...... They are the most beautiful, sweet, good natured, cooing, snuggly, adorable chickens that ever were. I LOVE my two girls.. Only had em a week and they are by FAR my favorite. I have two, possibly three breeders lined up and can't wait to have oodles of them running around and making lots of adorable chickies..!! Pink eggs.... who can beat that???

    Did I mention I am naming my first roo Favio.... The roos are the MOST handsome of roos IMHO.

    I dont pronounce it. You should be able to pronounce it or not get one. I almost didnt get Rhode Island Reds cause I didnt know how to pronounce RIR, lucklily someone said that it was an abreviation. whew that was close stick with the simple names its easier that way.. [​IMG]
