    Just wondering what kinds of cocks/roos everyone's looking for! I really don't care what kind of rooster I have... as long as I have one. But what's on your rooster wish-list?
     

  2. All I want is a rooster that is fertile [​IMG]. That way he can help make all the chicks I want to hatch this year.

    Welsummer! I'm pleased to have a Marans cockerel and an EE cockerel, a Welsummer roo would round out the colored egg collection nicely. [​IMG] Besides, I think they are handsome. [​IMG]

    ETA: but I'd have to get rid of one or two of my existing roos. [​IMG]

    Blue Gold Duckwing Bantams. Lotta roo in a little package! LOL We have two and could have have ten more and it wouldn't bother us at all. The colors are just fabuous and we like a roo with a little 'tude, too. [​IMG]

    If I had to choose...

    -D'Uccle (specifically Mille fluer)
    -Either a blue-breasted or black-breasted red Dutch Bantam

    I am also in love with my little EE roo, Tux. He's cuddlier than my Silkie hen.
