My Best Boy Jagger

  1. Hannah11
    'My Best Boy Jagger!'

    Old English Game bantam (or so I believe)
    2-3 years old
    Adopted him so he wouldn't go in the pot (wouldn't have made much of a meal he's tiny)

    He would have to be the most charming gentleman I have ever met.....
    he taught all of my Ex-Battery hens how to be chickens, He was so delightful to watch teaching them to scratch, dust bath and all other perfect chicken things! It might sound strange but I never saw him mate with them until they were back to full health and fully feathered again.
    he loves sneaking into the house to look for the chicken scrap bin i have to always be on guard! but when he does find it he steps back makes a little noise and all his girls come running in for a treat, he doesn't eat anything until they are done!

    I think he's just darling and handsome! (apart from the time I saw him eat a mouse whole..)
