    The big guy is Large Barley (Barley) and Bad Boy Dandy (Andy) you see in the backround our injured but okay hen Bonnie, bald as can be,,, Barley is a bad boy and beats the other roosters into submission. it's not too rough, just trying to keep his rank. Bruiser's not in this pic but he was close by

    Nice boys, I feel for the hen though... I have a few that look like her. I'm going to buy some saddles for mine. I tried a "duct tape" saddle but it didn't work.

    Does Andy have his tail feathers? I can't tell from the angle of the shot.

    andy had most of his tail feathers pulled out by our lead hen Goldie but he's making a comeback and they're coming back! Barley usually struts his tail saying "ohohoho i have feathers that stick straight up ohohoho"

    The hen that is injured was injured by roosters that are now in the great big scratch cup in the sky by death of barbecue, she was ripped open the equivalent of you being sliced open from your underarm to your hip... my dad stitched her back up and she got to spend 10 days in an nice warm house.

    Quote:OUCH! That's not happened with mine, but I too started making dinners out of the boys I didn't intend to keep.
