Goldtop Roo?

Could it be?

My white Silkie has access to a Goldtop and a Light Sussex hen. Both hens tend to go broody, in tandem. I ~ I must admit ~ can't really be too bothered what else they get up to. I sort of just wait and see, now.

Earlier, last year, they pulled off two chicks, between them. Those were what I called " Yellow and brown ". They Both turned out to be males! Again, I wasn't that bothered. Then, one started being a dick and met Jesus.

This one took the hint and has behaved impeccably. He's no use to man or beast. But, nor have I any reason to kill him.

I'm just curious about a definite ID. I remember Someone, on here, asked after a Goldtop Roo. Someone else said they'd never heard of such a thing, as no one in their right mind would raise one.

Well; I never Was the sharpest tool in the box .....

Not a goldtop rooster I'm afraid, it would be silver. It looks like the silkie roo was with your goldtop hen.

Ah. " I never Was the sharpest tool in the box. " LOL!

Thanks, Glyn. About the most useless thing ever to have crawled out of a shell then? Fair enough.

I feed the crows chicken food. Put down horse meal, every night, for the mice. Foxes get their Dog biscuits. Robin gets his mealworms. Cock pheasant comes and helps himself at the treadle feeder, every day.

*Think* I can yet about stretch to sustaining an untermensch chicken too ;)

Originally got them for 'something to look at'. Can look at him.
