    My Complete Chicken Life! by GoldenSparrow
    My chicken world! everything that comes to mind... My amazing rooster! whom I adore! Life in the chicken world.. and the Happy flock I have :)
    Enjoy
    !


    Chickens! the very word "chicken" makes me smile! hundreds of wonderful memories fills my heart... What about you? Chickens = Happiness
    six or seven years ago, if someone had told me, "You will one day have chickens." I would never have believed them.
    Yet here I am, I have had them for years now and love it!


    Meet My Rooster Liberty!
    He is a favorite. Born on the 4the of July in 2011. He is the son of one of the great 3 roosters we had in our first flock.

    Liberty is such a sweet heart. He is so nice. He is good to his hens and protects them from the many hawks we have. He even brought his hens under our front steps to hid from a hawk that had landed on the ground near by once. He is a very good rooster.
    He has never once, bitten, or shown any aggression.. I love him so much!

    Liberty's mother is completely White! his father was green and white. I'm always wondering where the red came from on Liberty. ( Any Ideas?)

    His mother and father:


    Liberty's Father
    passed away this July :(
    He had a serious leg problem that not even the avian vets could figure out what it was.
    He was about 4 or 5 years old. He was the meanest rooster I have ever met. but truth to say, I loved him with every bit of my heart. I am really surprised how nice Liberty is compared to his father...


    Liberty's mother
    (Golden) She is completely white and has green legs, and lays green eggs. She is the toughest hen I have ever met. Very heavy and well built and solid. She is a great layer and lays green eggs. She is completely white and has dark green legs. She was hatched the same time Libertys father was.

    Pretty rooster, I was wondering how long did Liberty's father live ? And do you still have his mother. As for his coloring probably came from his mother's EE ancestory they are have such a wide variety of color. And it might have been in his father's background too.

    Thanks so much!!!!

    Liberty's dad looks just like my Columbian Wyandotte Rooster. Not sure what his mother is, maybe an Ameruacana mix, or an EE? That could perhaps bring in the color to Liberty. No matter what, he sure is beatiful!
  17. ChickenLeg
    His mom seems to be an EE and if his dad comes from the same flock then maybe one of Liberty's grandparents resembled him? or even further down the line... Nice article, congrats on frontpage!
