    Hi everybody,

    My neighbor left behind a few roosters and hens that she couldn't catch when she moved. Our coop of about 20 hens does not have a rooster so one of her roosters decided to join our flock. My girls love him! He is beautiful! He is a cross breed. I'm thinking black copper Maran and something else....what do u all think?!?![​IMG]

    Looks like a mixed breed to me.

    I know!! He is very beautiful and so far not very mean. Our last rooster was a prick and we did not want another but he seems pretty mellow.

    I'm thinking mix of mixes. He's mixed enough no specific breed stands out. As long as he's a nice guy, that's the important thing!

    There is no need to tolerate a human aggressive rooster.

    Never a good reason to keep a bad roo. There are a glut of roosters available - a true buyers market. You can even find good show/breeding stock roosters at great prices because so many towns etc. forbid them. Check out the "BYC Buy,sell,trade forum.
