    This is Mr. Bigfoot I raised the little guy since he was a few hours old and was always told he was a hen. Till yesterday when I was confirmed what nobody likes to hear...Your favorite "hen" is a rooster. He is the sweetest thing, very soft, and gentle with babies [​IMG] I'd love to keep him but he has to go [​IMG] He'd make any chicken owner happy. [​IMG]

    My favorite too is my Harley boy! He's a bantam Cochin and he LOVES to be picked up and kissed. And he also (when there was school) would walk down the driveway with us and wait for the bus [​IMG] He's adorable! Will add a video here in a sec

    He is the black roo in the video..the video is actually of my white cochins...the hen always makes this noise and the white roo will follow her to her nest and wait with her while she lays her egg [​IMG]

    Cute video of your roo!

    Here are my sweet roos. I can't choose a favorite among my bachelor boys. They are extra mellow because they live in their own bachelor coop and have no hens to protect.

    Our super sweet Bantam Cochin Roo. We got him from someone who recommended him because she said he never bothered anyone, animal or human. We took him home and the hens all fell in love with him that day. He's more of a puppy than a rooster.

    Oh that's such a cute photo. I love it when roosters are good with kids. There are a lot of feather footed roos as favorites so far.

    This is BP(Buff Puff). I had to help him hatch because he was shrink wrapped. He literally lived in my pocket for the first few weeks of his life. He brings me a treat every morning, and gently places it on my knee when I croutch down to give everyone their morning chin scratch. He's a Silkie/ BO mix and he's the best [​IMG]
