    So, I'm getting a roo in a few weeks [​IMG] but I want to know what is the best breed. There's a BO, a Jersey Giant, and a random grey roo available. Which one do you think would be best? [​IMG] Thanks.

    Any one of those breeds could work. Orps and JGs are known for being fairly docile breeds; however, each rooster is different, and there's always the risk of getting an aggressive one no matter how docile a breed is generally supposed to be. Personally, I'd just pick the breed that you best like the looks of, and if the first rooster doesn't work out, then try again.

    Well, it looks like its NOT a BO. [​IMG] BUT, there are some silkies, duccles, and the same JG and grey roo. The new flock is going to be brahmas, polish, silkies, and BO.
