7 1/2 week old Delaware... Roo? - Page 2

post #11 of 17

Cockerel.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts."

Well, here are a couple updated pics of my BOY, Lenny Roo... He will be 13 weeks tomorrow, and just started (some rather adolescent attempts at) crowing this week! We obviously have no further doubt as to whether we have a lady or a gent here -- just posting an update for those who responded, so y'all can see how he is doing! :)

 


He's such a handsome boy, and is already doing a fine job of herding his ladies under the azalea bush in response to aerial visitors and protecting the from the young squirrel that lives in our oak tree :)

1 Siberian cat (Rurik), 2 hamsters (Teddy and Alvin), 2 parakeets (Samson and Delilah), and 5 chickens: Black Australorp named Pepper, Buff Orpington named Stella, Barred Rock named Henrietta, a Golden-Laced Wyandotte named Lynda Carter the Wonder Chicken, and an Easter Egger named Princess Victoria (who we got in trade for our Delaware, Lenny Roo),... the zoo groweth!

Aww he's lovely! Are you keeping him?

With his size he might be a good deterent to some predators - he has the reddest comb I have ever seen.  Think he just wants to drive that point home.

We are planning to, as long as he stays gentle. I think he will though; he is a good boy :)

Yeah, we had suspicions about him being a roo pretty early on. He is most -definitely- male, LOL!
