Many of you have doubtless seen pictures of Macgyver. He was not only my very first avatar but also a very handsome rooster.
At one point I had all hens and had recently gotten a hovabator. Now, most(if not all) of you chicken folks out there know that it can be difficult, dare I say it, impossible to hatch a non fertile chicken egg. The solution? A rooster. So, I put a wanted ad on the door of the local feed store and next thing you know I got myself a free rooster! I now know that he was a golden duckwing OE bantam. He was a beautiful bird!
So, why the name Macgyver?
Long blond 'hair'
Ladies loved 'm
Never got caught...for long
Seeing a connection?
So, anyway, I was soon given several chickens including some more bantam roosters, an ISA brown (I think) rooster, and some bantam hens.
After seeing Macgyver and the new red rooster I quickly named the ISA Murdoc. (Macgyver's worst enemy in the series)
One morning I woke up and Murdoc had killed Macgyver! They had been living piecefully for over a month until that day. I decided to name one of the other bantam roosters Macgyver the second.
Soon after that I sold like...pretty much everybody! I now had no Macgyver OR Murdoc. So, I named the black Cochin Bantam pair that I had after them.
Macgyver the third and Penny(Macgyver's friend in the series).
I eventually decided that I was not going to use Macgyver the third in my breeding plans so he went to the pot.
I now have Penny. A black cochin bantam.
I might continue the reign of Macgyver but for now Penny is the last of the Macgyver gang.
