    I am so amazed at this cockerel. He belongs to Just Likes to Hatch on this board. I gave him this Boy that I hatched from a Florida breeder cause I had a pair of cockerels and didn't need both and he needed a blue. Mine is not like this. This is the tallest Chicken I have ever seen. He gets me tickled just looking at him. I ask if I could take a picture and post cause I thought everyone would enjoy looking at him. Tell me what you think. I am going to send the breeder a picture.
    Tell me what you think.

    [​IMG] He seems like his name should be stretch. Cute, though. I am sure he will come into his own.

    Love the colors of your blues![​IMG]

    He's a beautiful color, but those legs....[​IMG]
    Wonder if he will end up growing into them? [​IMG]

    Well that is what is owners are hoping, that he will grow into his size. Can you imagine full plumage?
