    Golden laced Wyandotte?

    RIR roosters are beautiful too.

    My Light Brahma Cockerel is very good! He is the most beautiful thing I have ever laid eyes on, he is good to the hens, a perfect gentleman around humans, crows nice and low and is just downright amazing!

    How awsome that you are looking for 2-3 Roos. I wish I could. Just had to re-home my FBCMS. He was a beautiful bird, gentle and sweet. Just got to loud for the Hood. So many good Roos out there looking for a home. You're like a kid in a candy store. I'm soooo envious. I love the boys.
