    Can anyone tell me what kind of young man this is? I was sick and in hospital this summer so I don't know if he is one of my "homemade" chickens or something the hatchery sent by accident. The age difference between my "homemade" chicks and hatchery chicks was only 2 days.
    Here he is...

    And here is my only Cock Ol'Stewart who produced my "homemade" chicks...

    By the way, he is almost 4 times the weight of my Ol'Stewart, and 3 times as big.

    He looks like my Welsummer roo. He's a big bird, too. Maybe they sent you one?

    He's really pretty!

    Ahhh...see? I wasn't sure if that was dark feathering or mud. It looks like the ground is wet and I couldn't tell for sure.

    Either way, he's a gorgeous boy! [​IMG]

    Quote:There is minor feathering on the legs. So does that mean my super small ol'stewart made this huge and lovely big boy? I wonder what ol'stewarts parents were?
