So...after March 27, my barred rock cockerel was 5 months old. I took this photo the week before we left for the show: As you can see to the left, the Langshan cockerel was in the same pen. It was just too cold to separate all the birds without providing a heat source. Now.....the awesomeness that came from separating them. This is him...April 27: His tail doesn't normally stand down but he was thinking of nabbing the girl behind him... I think he's looking great for only 6 months old! No WONDER he wasn't holding his tail up at the show...he didn't have his main tail feathers in!
