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!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost

Sweet! Poor fella has his work cut out for him with 7 cougars to service.

Not a problem. The recommended ratio of roosters to hens is 1 rooster for every 10 hens and 1 rooster can easily handle up to 15 hens.
