    Ive had the pleasure of watching this beauty grow from an accidentally misplaced egg, to six month old mama's boy/ deputy of the flock. (His mother is of course the leader...)

    Then after leaving for a month and a half, I came home to this guy:

    He is the most stunning rooster I've seen colorwise, personally! He was an accidental mix between my black and copper and Serama, and my splashed Silkie roo. He has the most diverse genetics of my entire flock. Even though a mutt, this guy is worth all the blue ribbons. He's the sweetest little guy too. Although skittish, he'll gladly sit with you for food and he never overbreeds his flock. The perfect gentleman!

    Believe it or not, this is all the same chicken! All the pictures are of my cockerel, "Little Hawk"!

    Thank you! He recently lost a toe in a fight with a fox so sometimes he stands like a flamingo but he's never off guard. Love this little man!
