Re: my favorite cockrel

He looks a lot like 'Yellow' that MD was using in one of his pen. Good looking fella. Hope he is sweet.

Yellow wasn't.

Re: my favorite cockrel

That is why he is my favorite.  He is really, really tame.  He's always enjoyed the company of people, will let you pick him up and is always looking for handouts (which I've encouraged).  He has never challenged me or anyone else.  I'll overlook his other failings because of his excellent temperament.  I hope it stays that way.

Re: my favorite cockrel

Even though they are beautiful and lay Huge eggs..........the temperament of these birds is their best feature if you ask me.  I have lots of people come out to pick up babies and everyone is just amazed at the great temperament.  I have 12 or 14 roosters in a pen....grow-out feeder pen and I have never seen a squabble with them....GROWN ROOSTERS.  It just blows my mind...if it wasn't already gone....how kicked back and relaxed they are.  But they better stay alert....Carol bought me an Electric Plucker for Fathers Day  :net:  :eat:  :jumping:..........Mike

Re: my favorite cockrel

What faults are you overlooking? This lad looks great! Do I see a couple of sprigs on his comb? I am not lucky enough to have a cockerel quite so nicely barred and dark yet, but I'm selecting my way for it. He is a handsome boy, and temperament is so important. I have one EO cockerel with a crooked toe and wry tail and nasty disposition that's headed for the slow cooker this week! He bit me several times and that plus the toe and tail have sealed his fate.

Yes, Riverbend, he has a little spring on each side at the back and he is a bit of a lightweight compared to his brothers.  But, it is the temperament that I would prefer to have and then work through the other issues.
