    There must be some big rocks around you if you can find one big enough to hide behind...

    May 14-16; but if you wanna see the gang, you need to be plannin' on the 14th (Friday.)

    So?

    Oh, and I wouldn't verbally abuse you. You're big enough and close enough to kick my ass. lol! There's a Redland thread going, check it out for all the fun.

    his tail will grow in once he Molts - which should occur once it heats up a bit more .
    make sure they are getting lots of protein (game bird crumbles-alfalfa lots of bugs)when the molt starts and the new feathers will be that much better.
    he has a beautiful red face & wattles (spring time hormones) - the back of his comb looks black, is that crusty blood or ??

    Rhode Island Red & Barred Rock roosters are crazy horn dogs (more than most roosters imho), watch that he does not single out one "special girl" for xtra attention. He will wear feathers off her back to the skin, rip her comb etc....
    enjoy the birds

    add: closeups did not load at first. I don't like the "black" on the comb. It should also be cherry red like the face and wattles are. If it spreads or gets funkier go and have the entire comb cut off - fighting cock style.
    it could be nothing but showing his age = OLD ? but just in case keep an eye on it .

    He's gorgeous. I would have no idea about his comb...and I wouldn't have noticed anything unusual about it. Good thing we have a chicken guru on the forum!

    Thanks Brant!!! I asked a local chicken guru about the comb and she said it looks like he's healthy now, but he may have fallen ill at some point in his life, or it could have been caused by some sort of trauma like a fight but I shouldn't be concerned. Good eye, and thanks for the "heads up".

    The new hen house is about 50% done. The woman who gave me the info on Cajun's comb has RIR pullets for sale and they're close to laying, but RIR roosters are such horn dogs that she wouldn't recommend getting pullets with Cajun, because he would probably rip out the feathers on the backs of their heads/necks trying to mount them. Who knew there was so much stuff that went along with trying to make an omelet

    The nicest Roosters to Hens and People are of all things Fighting Cocks

    Glad to see my observations of the overly domesticated breeds Horndogginess confirmed.
    White Leghorn Roosters - i have not seen that be an issue with though.

    when he passes on to that great deep fryer in the sky then it might be a good time to start a flock with a bunch of same age chicks. would or should help keep horndog aggression to a minimum.

    My sil has a Wine Dot rooster who seems quite gentlemanly to her hens. I think because
    he's out-numbered maybe and they gang up on him if he gets too frisky. Anyway, her
    Wine Dots seem very friendly and lay enormous, plentiful eggs.

    "Wine Dots seem very friendly..."

    Is that the same as Wyandotte?
