I would like for you to meet "King". He is a very large rooster a little over a year old. He is a White Rock, and quite a character. His name suits him well. He has three White Rock Hens and four Tetra Tints in his pen. The White Rocks lay light beige to tan very large eggs. The Tetra Tints are a Tractor Supply Chick that is a mixture of a Rhode Island or New Hampshire Red and a White Leghorn Hen. They lay eggs that are smaller than the White Rock's but theirs vary in color from Tan, White, to polka dotted....The White Rocks and the Tetra Tints lay lots of eggs.
Check it out, walk in the pen and a rooster will inevitably crow!
You can see the Tetra Tint Hen on the right. She has tiny tint from the RI or NH Red hen and mostly white from her Leghorn Breeding. We had never heard of this breed so we gave it a try.
Isn't he a beauty? There behind the water holder is one of his White Rock Hens.
You can see the difference in the hen colors the beautiful pure white are of course the White Rocks
You can see the difference in the hens the two Tetra Tints are standing in the front. They are a smaller breed of chicken than the Rocks.
He is more subdued yet acts very regal.
They are a very sweet, large breed of chicken. You can see these chickens at night they are such a pure white they almost shine in the dark.
One more time let's see that crow
Hope you enjoyed the Sunday Chicken Day and have a great week.
May God bless you all.
