This is Mr. Big Stuff.  He is a bantam Brassy Back OEG.   His back feathers are beautiful gold and orange.   I'm not sure how old he is, but most likely more than 1 year old



Here is his oldest son.  His back is not brassy.   scratch  In fact, his back is red and orange-red.  He's gorgeous, but I don't think he's the new rooster I'm looking for.





Tomorrow I'll post pictures of his two younger brothers.

Yes, I want to have a young rooster who looks as much like Mr. Big Stuff as possible.  Here are a couple more candidates.

Son #2 attacked Son #3's head and messed up his comb.  They are supposed to be dubbed, but I don't think that will completely fix it.  That probably doesn't matter for breeding purposes.  #3 is slightly more "brassy" than #2 as far as feather color goes.  They are just barely 24 weeks old, so maybe colors will develop with time?  There is one more little rooster, but he is way too young to see his color.

You can definitely see the color you want in those two Dawn.

The hens of these are very friendly.  They always run to greet their people.  Sometimes they fly up on my shoulder.  When Marshall was putting up the skirting on the trailer, one of them went over and hung out with him.   lol  Mr. Big Stuff had a close call with the turkeys.  He was taunting one of them and it finally had enough, so it pinned him down with its beak on his neck.  Marshall's cousin saw what was happenning and broke it up.  I'm pretty sure Mr. Big Stuff learned nothing from this encounter.
