    Would you buy this rooster for $8.00? I am thinking of adding him to my flock. His comb is better than the rooster's comb that I have now.

    Is he a Buff Orp? He looks different from my BO roos.......
    You could go on feathersite and look at the breed pictures to see if he's got "all the right stuff". On the other hand, if you like him, $8.00 isn't tons of money.
    Here's one of my BO's at 5 months if that helps......

    I am not offended. The one I have, his comb is deformed. He was picked on where he was before. Too many roosters, not enough hens. Between the two, which would you use as your rooster? Please vote.

    I'd stick with the one with the damaged comb - he's got the better head.
     
  10. I would keep your current roo.. Since his comb was damaged.. It is not genetic.. And he should pass on better combs to his babies. I like your current roo better..
