    So I have two adult roosters right now. One is a partridge silkie who does a t-Rex impersonation MANY times a day. It's this weird roar he does that I've never heard before. Cracks me up.
    The other one is this boy here. Mufasa. He's a stunning EE rooster who sometimes goes and lays in the nesting boxes. Never alone though. Nope, tucked in behind him is his favorite, and most loyal hen, Spazzy. She's an old English game hen mix of some sort. Still much smaller but bigger than a pure OEGB. He lays in there with her while she lays her eggs. He doesn't do this with anyone else.

    Anyone else have goofy roosters?

    Here is Mufasa-
