Re: Cockerel critique

Could we start a strand for  photos of fols breeding roos?  And a seperate one for hens? That way we can all learn from seeing the strengths and needs of each guya and think who they match well with and whose eggs we may wish to buy to improve our stock.

Just an idea!


Good idea! Maybe showing photos from similar angles so they can be evaluated similarly? :applause:

The rain seems to have passed. I'm going to try to get some photos of Edward and the pullets today. Hopefully they will be cooperative. They're such little busy bodies.

Re: Cockerel critique

Hey Terra here are my two boys as promised the first three are of Kazoo the last two are of Kramer.  You can see Kazoo's not so good comb but I think the rest of him is pretty good.  Then there is Kramer who is lighter in colour but good comb.

Re: Cockerel critique

I love kazoo, he is so svelte.  Kramer is cool too, looks like a slimmer version of Speckled Jim!

Re: Cockerel critique

Oooh they are both very handsome!! Kazoo has a very distinctive look about him. He has panache.. maybe the comb helps! Kramer looks sleek and well put together, imo. Personally the comb doesn't bother me though I know it isn't the standard. Maybe I'm just used to the Swedish roosters and their wonky combs but I kind of like the character it adds.

I agree it's good they have different strengths. I wish I had two boys to grow out here but only one really made the cut. The only other boy that was even close did not have a good disposition and that's really important to me. Thanks for sharing pics!:thumbs:

Re: Cockerel critique

Well I had about 9 boys to choose from so at the time I was choosing of course they were not mature enough.  Kazoo's comb started out looking great until about mid-summer.  I couldn't keep all the boys to mature as they were already starting to fight.  Kramer and Kazoo where in together but Kazoo kept picking on poor Kramer so bad that he escaped the pen so I put him in with my "older" girls.  I have two eggs that made it to lockdown from Kramer so will see what the offspring look like, set to hatch on Wed. this week. :thumbsup:

Re: Cockerel critique

I'm currently EO-less, unfortunately, but I'll have some hatching eggs this spring to begin to replace the birds lost this fall due to the storm and sickness. It looks like the winter will be for continuing the EO education. Thanks again for all the help with the critique. Hopefully I'll have some EOs before too long and will have something to offer here. I miss this forum! :)

Re: Cockerel critique

Oh Terra I am so sad to hear you don't have EO's :sad:  Well know that you have had them I am sure they have touched your heart like they have with the rest of us.  With the prospect of having them again soon :thumbsup:
Please keep in touch :happycrowd"

Re: Cockerel critique

:thanks: I just wanted to let everyone know why I haven't been around. I'll be back though. I really love the EOs. They have it all!

I hope everyone in the US has a nice Thanksgiving! Those of you on the Canadian side already had yours.. I'm going to cook our turkey long and slow this year. Can't wait to try it that way. Y'all made it sound so good! :eat:

Re: Cockerel critique

Terra - you don't have to have EOs to hang out here! Heck, if you say 'tiny purple chickens' three times in a row - really fast -

I'll let you know when fertile eggs start back up around here. :hi:

If we like you you can stay with or without chickens.

Some of us are driven by the need to make animals a part of our lives. We are soothed by their presence, fascinated by their behavior, and amused by their antics.

Re: Cockerel critique

Thanks so much guys!! (and ladies!) I can't wait to hatch some eggs.. :happycrowd"

Thanksgiving here was wonderful. I made the turkey using the slow roast method and it was the best turkey I've ever cooked. The family was raving about it and all wanted to know how I did it. Umm, 23 hours in the oven? :eat:

Even the leftovers were juicy and the browning was PERFECT. I still can't believe how good it was cooking it like that. :turkey:
