    My flock has spent its first week out in their new coop. [​IMG] I go out daily and talk to them and sit with them. Well I thought I had all 8 pullets, however, it looks like I have a SLW Roo and 7 hens. [​IMG] My roo I have named Colt because he has a horseshoe on his forehead. Today he decided that he likes to climb on my shoulder and peep at me. My husband can not believe how much this rooster loves me. [​IMG] And he wanted to kill it!

    Colt decided that my shoulder was cool and all of the sudden he jumps up on my head and makes a "cough". I guess that was a cock-a-doodle-doo to me. [​IMG]

    Who would have guessed that 5 weeks ago I had never had a thing to do with chickens? I absolutely love to watch them and they enjoy my company.
