Hi my name is Kate n I live just outside beautiful Savannah GA. Two yrs ago I woke up to 2 roosters in my back yard, now as I have 2 big dogs n 5 cats I thought it very surprising that these 2 birds would just pick my house to roost, so I have wondered if someone just didn't put them in my yard. Every one in my neighborhood knows I rescue animals so I have always wondered. After finding this site I finally found out what kind of bird Jack is, American Game Bantam, after reading about them I now know why I have only one left, seems they don't get along after they become get around 6 months old. My one cat (Weba) n Jack are best friends, they play together and when she comes in, he is at the door pecking to come in too. I have had birds all my life but never Roosters or Chickens. I was wondering to find out a little more about my Jack. He is a real character and has never bothered my cats at all, n often find him laying next to them, and eating & drinking with them. How long do the live? He LOVES dry cat food, will that harm him? He eats really anything u give him, loves tomatoes too. When he sees me pulling into the driveway he comes running across the yard to greet me because he knows I will give him a handful of cat food. My neighbors love seeing him pecking around the trees in my yard, when they take their walks. I will say he's a loving little guy, n I sure do love him to death. Anyway sorry about the ramblings.
