    Would that also be called a Golden Buff?

    Quote:They are being kept in the dog kennel, just for the moment. He is beautiful, but MEAN!!!!!! I am in the process of building their pen. I did my Silkies cage first. They will have new digs in no time.

    Some breeders call their sexlinks Golden Buff, Golden Comet, Red Star, etc. Just different names for their particular Red Sex link

    I have no idea. The first picture should have the caption
    "All bow down before me, the great god rooster!"
    Is he a real dictator to his ladies? He is a beautiful bird tho.

    [​IMG]:lol: THAT'S SO FUNNY!!!!!!!! They are taking a dust bath and he's watching every move that I make. I have to carry a bat around when they are out to keep him from charging me. He is a great roo to his ladies. He's so great to them.

    I can't be too upset with him, he was a rescue. As were the two Leghorn hens! Taken right out of the battery cage! I don't hit him with the bat it's just for protection. I turned my back on him one day and he buried his 2 1/2" spurs into the back of my leg three times![​IMG] I was too close to his girls. The girls that I gave him. LOL

    He is fine with the 95lb Lab that keeps things clear for him. He doesn't like people. He's good to the hens and I have fertile eggs now. I'm sure he'll die of old age with the mixed breed girls.
    I keep the bat near the coop and he keeps his spurs to himself. Plus, I won't ever turn my back on him again!

    southernchick - This is too funny - I think I have the same roo! I was told he was a Red Sex Link Leghorn, so that may help you. Just a regular roo, nothing fancy. But I have gotten a lot of comments that he's pretty, and large. But I don't think too many people are used to seeing an 'old' rooster. I've had him for two years.

    I have to move soon and can't take him with me, so I'm looking for a new home for him. If everything works out, he'll be out on a farm taking care of some new ladies by the weekend. I just need to talk on the phone with the lady one more time and drive him up.
