    I put this add on there to look for a roo and my ullet gave out a strangled crow the next day. So I need to change my add. I need a couple of hens or pullets for my now boy. I have the rooster curse, so it was a goven if I was looking for a roo, I'd already have one.

    Dont have a short legged black tailed buff japanese but have 2 roosters that are decent type for $10 each and can ship if you may be interested.

    These came from eggs that I bought off of ebay last year these are almost a year old. Both have yellow legs. Also have other color japanese for sale if you may be interested.

    I'll keep them in mind during my hunt. I'm kind of hoping to find one closer so I don't have to ship.

    I understand I'll be trying to sell them this saturday at a local flea market so may not have them much longer.

    She crowed! First time and it was tiny, but that's a crow! Waiting to hear from the breeder to see if I should even breed. This bird looks like it's mother and has been mounted by banatam roos and goes into nest boxes, but no egg. So till I know what I need to do, I'm keeping this open but will probably have to read hen and not roo. I swear I have the roo curse. My birds seem to change sex way late in life. [​IMG]

    well sometimes hens will crow but do you happen to have a better picture of the tail? It could be a small combed rooster as well

    Well he's still beautiful. He's changed the past couple of weeks. Had so much going on and was feeding watering and running and just didn't notice. Yep, same tail now as my Mottled roo. So I'll be need to find a hen or 2 ASAP. If he just didn't hide all the time, I would have noticed sooner and he roosts with his tail down and tuck with 2 pullets. OK since he's a he, how does he look?

    After reading this thread I actually laughed out loud when I saw the picture because that was the most definitive, cockerel-looking Japanese of its age I've seen. I live in Northern California, actual Nor Cal--Humboldt County--and I have a BTB pullet that is about two to three months old that I would like to find a home for. I took her in, but I am getting some mottleds, so I would much rather see her go to a breeding program where her color will be more productive. I don't know if you're still interested, but if you are it would be nice to work out some delivery arrangements. I don't think it would be necessary or wise to send her through the mail.
