    This whole time we've talked about how big she is, what sexy legs she has, how pretty her long tail feathers are. She's named after my mom (Marylou) who is also red & fiery. She's about 6mo. We had to relocate our bantam roo to the other end of the yard about 2 weeks ago, assuming his cut comb & bruised side were from our muscovies. Marylou started crowing yesterday.

    That ain't no girl. I'll bet my coops on it. You sure he isn't crowing? Ought to be.



    Oops, we posted at the same time. Marylou is just Lou.

    She started crowing yesterday, about 2 weeks after we isolated our bantam cochin roo to the other end of the yard (see above)
