    Well, to all you Gideon fans, followers and lovers, I thought he deserved a new updated post - he is no longer just looking for a girlfriend - he has 7 wives, and 3 new babies!

    Gideon is a most handsome rooster - it is unbelievable how much he has filled out and all the beautiful brown patches he's sporting from his EE mama. I think he is very happy here in his new home in South Carolina, with his harem of wives! And now, he is a daddy!!! Lena, the golden laced wyandotte went broody back in December, and after a few days of taking her eggs away from her, we finally gave in and let her see what she could do. We now have 3 adorable little "peeps". I am soooooo impressed with the health and vigor of these babies!!! Just goes to show you, good old fashioned broody hens left to do their thing, do it well, I guess!!

    So, I just have to say, Gideon is the best rooster ever!!! He is so gentle, and such a gentleman! Thank you a million times to Speckledhen for allowing me to adopt him. He is simply a joy! And now as promised, on to the pictures:

    He looks wonderful! And you have a beautiful place, too, Karla. Gideon lucked out with his new mama and his lovely new wives.

    So, Karla, how is Gideon now? Any progress reports on his progeny? Have been thinking about you lately and wondering how you and he are doing.
