    Quick get a white leghorn roo over her.

    I'm thinking dual purpose white feathered layer that starts laying super jumbo eggs everyday when only 8 weeks old. [​IMG]

    Quote:LOL! My two roos are a turken and a LF brahma and I'm not letting my 13 lb. brahma roo anywhere near her! Can you imagine the chicks that mating would create??? [​IMG]

    Sadly, my meatie cockerel passed away. He was 16 lbs. when he passed. [​IMG]
