    He's a wonderful rooster! I just want to show him off!!!
    I'll tell his story to [​IMG]

    STORY:
    I was already waiting for 15 chicks from MPC, and my brooder was empty. At my 4-H meeting they had chicks that had hatched on the same day as my ordered chicks, so I bout 5 of them, Elvis, Birda, ChickChick, Mara, and Speckles. They comensed to breaking in to coop (my brooder was in it), they were having a good ol' time. Elvis was already acting like the little roo he was! (little cause he was half the size of 3 of the others and 1/3 the size of big Birda). Then that next day the 15 from MPC came. (with one extra deformed one, Snobol). The "Fantastic 5" who were already awake and thriving, didn't understand why these new comers insisted on sleeping most of the day. But they soon gave up on trying to play with them and just slept with them (Mob mentality and all). Elvis didn't like how he wasn't getting all my attention (he wasn't the smallest or weakest now, I had little banties and Snobol had special needs).
    Fast forward a week, Snubol had died [​IMG], and I had bought 4 more chicks. One of these for (My Crevecoeur) was very weak, so I had to make sure she was eating and Elvis was still not being cared for! But by now he was fine with it and was comensing with sparring with my other young roos (he was still a half pint). He actually won quite often!
    Fast forward 2 more weeks and it's outside the coop day- The little weak Crevecoeur was stronger now and was growing in her crest and beard (one feather at a time [​IMG]). Elvis has become the dominant chick and me and my family's favorite. Everyone is happy!
    Fast forward to a now, 15 weeks. Elvis and ChickChick are crowing, Their the 2 dominate roos, my other 3 roos don't crow. Elvis really looks awsome, he's turned out to be a Birchen bird [​IMG] and he doesn't like being handled!
