...or chickens.

Well, living in the city I don't see too many roosters. These creatures are incredibly photogenic...proud, handsome and colourful. I did see one at a local 'farm' - really just a petting zoo in a permanent setting. It's really for urban kids to see what a farm looks like. But here's the only shot I have of these magnificent creatures. Please post yours....

this guy is from Toronto's Riverdale Farm

Of course, I can't get pictures of the "normal" roosters, I have to get pictures of the one with a grooming/clumsy problem....:)

Thanks, when I shot the cock I had a rubber on. Uh, a rubber lens hood that is. I hate using the hard Canon hoods. A PITA to carry around.
Actually I once started a thread here entitled "Who here uses rubbers?" when I was trying to determine if these incredibly cheap len hoods were any good.

Great thread and some great shots. Chickens are great looking birds that taste good, um, I mean with good taste. :lol:

yes, chickens are tasty, but I wonder if roosters taste as good... I don't know, I live in a large urbanmetropolis far removed from our food sources, farms. Maybe a cook or someone living in the country may know?

I do know that a capon is a castrated rooster. Don't know if they do this to make them tastier or to make them easier to raise (they are less likely to want to fight with each other)

In my opinion: Some breeds lend themselves to eggs and some to meat.

Meat birds grow fast (7-8 weeks) and have meat where they should. Cock or hen , they taste the same (Delicious) - over 5 lbs in the freezer in 7-8 weeks (young and tender). :)

Egg chickens grow much slower and by the time they are big enough for dinner are too tough for my liking. (like shoe leather) ;)

The chicken you buy in the store, ready to eat, are only about 6 weeks old and full of growth hormones. At 6 weeks, you can't even tell the sex of a normal chicken.
