Today is a sad day; my favorite rooster died last night. He was a cross bred frizzle rooster, his mother’s name was Eagle and his father was Raoul; he looked just like his dad. He was an old boy for a rooster; five years at least, but I kept him because he had beautiful babies and because he was a gentle, caring boy, good with chicks and hens and people of all heights and shapes. As is the way with these things he got into a fight with one of his grand sons and lost the fight. He was in intensive care overnight, but the hot day and his advanced age did him in. I will miss him.
Ryan Rooster a month ago.
I am looking for homes for some of Ryan’s grandsons as I am going to have a Salmon Faverolles rooster next I think;
This little boy is still waiting for his adult feathers, but he will be steel grey I think and a full frizzle look.
Some good news for the day; I have one little Minorca chick hatched! They are so cute; with their short little beaks and big eyes.
The Minorca is the one with her face away from the camera (of course)
