Arlene, I have 12 pullets that are now producing 7-9 eggs per day, including 8 Araucanas that lay blue-green eggs. The meat chicks I bought at the same time were just that, raised for meat. The last ones I butchered had grown so big they were like small turkeys.

That is the strangest "chicken" I have ever seen and I can understand why you kept him, is he the only one you have now???

Thanks, Liz! I would gladly give him to someone who has more use for him than I do! Strictly ornamental IMO.

LOL Moussifer! So far this fellow has been very gentle with the hens and me as well. As a matter of fact, with that mop top obscuring his vision, he doesn't even see me approaching most of the time. I spared him because he's so beautiful and because I got an AC for his picture a couple weeks ago when I finally figured out what he is, a freebie thrown in by the hatchery I got some of my chicks from. Thanks for your comment!

My father-in-law had a similar rooster a while back. The little guy got way too big for his britches one day and jumped on my mother-in-law who promptly hit him with a broom and broke his neck. The little guy made some decent soup. Hope your buff boy meets a better end. Thanks for sharing the picture.
