    This is Screech. He thinks he is a giant.
    Screech 1

    He is a massive 14 ounce Cream Light Brown Dutch Cockerel. [​IMG]
    As a full grown rooster he should get up to a whole pound. He got his name when just a few weeks old. He screeches at everything. Especially me when I don't give him anything before going back in the house.

    Couple more pics just to show him off.
    Screech 2 Screech 3

    He is spoiled rotten. Several weeks ago he got a sinus infection because he was helping me clean out a couple larger coops. The dust was heavy and he was in the middle of it. While he was feeling bad, I would sit him on his house to treat his sinuses and them feed him mealworms or another snack. After a week he was completely better, but still expected his treats every evening.

    He is so handsome [​IMG] The little ones seem to be the cockiest huh? (Even humans [​IMG]) Kidding! My mom had a bantam named Napoleon. He would attack her father in law as best he could every time he came over. He thought it was hilarious and would egg him on! Can you imagine a little bitty rooster attacking you like that?!
