    I wish my roo would sit on some eggs and let the uber-broodies get a break!

    What a fabulous boy!

    WOW!! He is beautiful and such a sweetie!! Sometimes I think roosters have a bigger heart than hens. We also have a rooster (approx 6 weeks old) that we put 6 chicks with (ages 2wks - 4 wks). The little chicks snuggle up under him also, and follow him around like HE'S their mama. I just love a good rooster!!
