    I vote Jersey Giant. I don't have a roo but my female JG is a love. I guess it's all going to depend on the specific bird's personality but JG's seem very sweet.

    Depends on what you're going to put him with. Personally I like the Welsummer or the Salmon Faverolles

    Holy crap! Is that the entire list of chicken breeds? I think the Welsummer, Brown Leghhorn, and Easter Egger roosters are the prettiest. I have a little Mille Fleur D'Uccle roo who is the cutest little thing. He is the smallest of my chickens, which is hysterical in itself, but his crow is adorable! He sounds like a little wind-up toy. The perfect little Er er er er errrrrr crow.
    My polish crested, and now his son, a crested/ brown leghorn cross is cool as anythhing to look at, but his crow? Absolutely atrocious, he sounds like a foghorn.

    If I were up for another breed, I would get one that is not on your list. Lemon Cuckoo Orpingtons
