    Anyone who has been here awhile may remember Ru, Cyn and I went back & forth on was he a he or a she for months. Snapped these today, am getting ready to move some BR girls in with him, right now he is in with an EE, 5 White Rocks and a Blue Orp hen. He is pretty laid back and a big CHUNK! This year I am going to play around with breeding him and see if he passes the "dark" gene to his offspring, he seemed to inherit the gene from his mother, Zoe, she is darker than most BR hens.

    OK, now I've gone from Pea Green, straight to Neon Green with envy! I don't think Cyn needs to worry about Cetawin stealing all of her roos with you around Lockedhearts! You're doing a fine job of hoarding them all to yourself just by performing "rescues"! [​IMG]

    Quote:RuPaul was hatched from eggs last year, he was the First offspring of Zoe (who I now have) she passes on the Dark Gene to some of her boys. In fact I sold 2 Pair of BR's last year and it turned out one of the girls was a rooster. When Ru was first hatched his name was Shaq, he literally hatched feet first and had HUGE feet(he still does) after the months of trying to figure out if he was he or she I changed his name to RuPaul!

    Hmmm so does he wear the hen's clothes when they aren't looking? He's a handsome guy, much more masculine than RuPaul ever was lol!!

    Quote:Ru is just Chunky all over!!!!!! When he jumps down from the roost, the ground shakes. His mother, Zoe is a good sized Hen too. I am not sure but I think Dutch is Ru's father, Cyn would have to confirm that as the eggs came to me before I got Mace and Girls.

    That is an unusual rooster. He is Dutch's son, I think. Gosh, it's been so long! Definitely Zoe's son, that girl has odd children.
