My liitle fluffy butt has become a man! (With a pic)

    I awoke to the strangest sound this morning! I was roused from my dreams to the a croaky voice screaming what sounded like "Ah! Whaa!" I jumped up, convinced that something was after my chickens and ran to the window in my PJ.s to find Louis, my BO rooster, standing proudly with his chest puffed out, peering around as though inviting admiration. He was 11 weeks old yesterday and apparently this morning he decided he had become a man! He has been my favorite since Nanny Ogg passed away because anytime I (or anyone new) walk outside he comes near the fence and tilts his head as though sizing us up and and thinking hard about why humans act the way they do. I like to think of him as the philosopher of my flock.

    Here is a pic of him strutting about the yard today, awfully proud of this morning's accomplishment.

    Aw, thanks guys! I know Louis would be doubly proud if he knew he was being admired on here!

    I absolutely love the Discworld books! I have a Barred Rock named Esme (Granny Weatherwax) and a Partridge Rock named Magrat, too! Someday when another chick comes along that is as plucky and full of life as the original, I think I'm going to use the name again. Nanny Ogg is my favorite character of all Pratchett's books!
