This is a picture of my Bantam Frizzled Serama who is named King Charlie. I have had the privilege of owning him for about two years now. He is a very friendly rooster and he lives inside my home. I love him and his lady (her name is Maple) so much that I have vowed to always keep them indoors so nothing bad ever happens to them. Charlie loves to flirt and has even been known to flirt with male Doves and Quail! I remember the laughter my children and I shared as we watched this little rooster prance and dance for birds that are not chickens! He simply doesn't mind what kind of bird it is!
Charlie had worms when I first brought him home, (that or he got them soon thereafter?) and he nearly died. I was able to determine that it was internal parasites with enough time to save him. I even posted about it here at BYC and got some tips and suggestions! In fact, he was sick in this photo. It is hard to see in this picture, but his comb was remarkably thin and pale. I am so glad that he has been healthy ever since! I don't know what I would do without him!
I have been able to witness some of charlies "children" hatching and have had the pleasure of watching them grow up. I never fails! He fathers more pullets than her does cockerels! I'm not complaining!
Charlie is older now and his feathers are even more full than in this photo.
I plan on making a video about "The Life of King Charlie" and I will be sure to post it here!
