    ok.
    this is the same person who wrote something about nugget and how to make a rooster as big as he is.
    but since no one was answering me i figured i would put it in here.
    i dont even know if it goes here but here goes again.
    i need a rooster to protect my flock.
    i was wondering what breeds i could cross to make a rooster as big as nugget.
    please answer me more.

    Langshans are HUGE!! I have seen some HUGE Buff Orps too. Maybe cross a langshan with a buff orp. [​IMG]

    Well, some have hatched humongous cockerels from my Blue Orp rooster over Buff Brahma hen. Zuni Bee is one of them and has pics on his website. Some of the pure BBS Orps are very large. My own Suede is about 14 lbs or so and over a foot and a half wide across the back abd across the chest.

    Are you wanting height as well as weight? Or height only??

    Langshan vs. 5-gallon bucket:

    He's not as heavy as I'm used to but he's approximately 15 lbs. He feels so "skinny" to me! LOL

    [​IMG] No....no I am not.....but they don't scream either! LOL! It is funny to watch though! The poor Leghorn just kind of "disappeared" underneath him when he tried to breed her...

    Sorry, I dont mean to hijack the thread here. We had a huge silver laced wyandotte rooster that would mate the smallest hen, a tiny little BBR OEGB hen, it looked like he was mating the ground.
