the roo that runs with all the hens is my Speckled Sussex.
they don't go anywhere near him & he ignores them.

that'll be interesting... i'm trying to get rid of 4 of these
guys, & keep one black, one blue & the copper headed one. i
was hoping to find someone interested in blue & black Orps, as
these are all nice examples, as opposed to making soup. i can
easily have one run for the hens & one for the roos, but 3
seperate runs is going to be difficult.
