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!
