    This is one of the roos I picked up from the lady for free; she said it was a 'rare breed cross' haha... anyway.. apparently it's two rare breeds crossed (she wanted me to 'back-breed it' if I wasn't going to eat it). One of the names sounded french - neither my husband nor I can remember what she said. Either way, they mustn't be pretty breeds and I think this one is called "Sunday Roast" anyway. Just curious! What do you think?

    (I bred it with a naked neck for food babies, I don't even want to know what those'll look like)

    LMAO I thought so. Funny how since I only buy hens I've never seen the rooster.

    Guess my rare chicken is indeed Sunday Lunch!

    Same story, different roos:

    Particularly interested in what on earth the middle one is...

    Also, just so you girls know, you have me saying 'roo' to refer to rooster in day to day life. I told my friends I was killing a roo for sunday dinner and they all honestly thought we were having KANGAroo. I'm impressed with their opinion that I will go out and kill a kangaroo though....

    Having kangaroo for dinner? I might think so too, especially when you are speaking here in Australia.

    Well, maybe sex link roosters are "rare" over there.

    As for the one in the middle in the latest pic, he looks like a mix based on the white earlobes and the coloring in the legs. Mix of what, I have no idea.
