So, back in early June, this little guy showed up in our yard. We have no idea where he came from.
We didn't have a coop at first, so he was living in a patch of brush/trees where he felt safe.
He would follow us around the yard whenever we were outside. Eventually, he started letting us feed him cracked corn right from our hands. Then, one day he let my daughter pick him up.
So now he sleeps here at night (my daughters boyfriend built this coop for him.)
As you can see, he's very social as well.
He's started "singing" while I play guitar. He's fascinated with the noise. Herbert has made himself a part of our world and we're happy to have him around. I'm sure he's the first of many chickens to come.
At first, we thought he was a Dominique, but now, we're pretty sure he's a Barred/Plymouth Rock. He's a friendly little guy. As soon as he sees us outside, he's right there with us just hanging out wherever we are. Again, we have no idea where he came from, but we're so happy to have him around.
