    I love the first picture. Look at those spurs and that stance. Mess with him and you are going to be scarred!

    I have a Dark Cornish Bantam hen named Sparrow, she has to be ancient! I got her a long time ago for Murry Mcmurry Hatchery. She would be super tame if she was handled alot but she is still pretty sweet. I also have a Standard Dark Cornish hen I got from a friend. Her name is Autumn. She is very curious and friendly, not to mention FAT! [​IMG]

    AWWWW she's very pretty. Glad others like them as pets too.

    It's been a long time since I got mine, can't even remember where around here.... but if I can catch his girl I'm going to pen them and collect some eggs. [​IMG]
