This story began when I arrived as a 4-month old cockerel, in May 2016, to the Valley of the Fox. I came as a gift to a couple of newbie carers, along with two younger girls – Lucrezia, the black beauty, and Isabel, the golden one. At first, we were suspicious of these strange people, who have the habit of *touching*... Not used to cuddles, we still had to learn that there’s more in life than corn. The inexperienced people knew no better than to put us together with 8 week-old chicks... To everyone’s great fortune, I never felt interested in the little ones. We got along well, however I could not shed the question of “why was I placed in the kindergarden?” A few weeks later, water poured out of the sky, and I was given my name, after furiously singing and dancing against the elements. Time went by and I noticed that the people couldn’t take proper care of the flock. So I have made it my life’s mission to protect and to serve this clan. Even before the dreaded hormones kicked in, I always gave my very best to please, daily offering food to the ladies and paying attention to every moving atom in the valley. So, it was only a small step until I became the undisputed leader of this coop, known from then on as The Clan of Rainbow. As we were growing up, it became clear that the humans are more trustworthy than previously expected. The long-haired human regularly appears with offerings of food (which makes her a good guy) but she also grabs me and picks me up! She even pets me!!... The action felt offensive in the beginning but now it actually feels... nice. As we became adults, I became very close to Lucrezia. She is the smartest, most beautiful lady I have ever seen! So I have made her my Queen. I pay special attention to all her needs, such as inspecting her nest and arranging the straw in the correct manner, so she can lay our beautiful eggs. I also try to be present every single time she’s having her photo taken! When my ladies lay eggs, I always celebrate with them by singing along, so they know how much I care! But I have to say... it profoundly displeases me when the people come and take the eggs away. What are they doing with them?! However, it never crossed my mind to object... I know they are our friends. Especially the long-haired one is strong and determinate, so I want to be on good terms with her. Plus... she gives me treats, which make me look good when I offer them to the girls! Maybe one day I will understand what happens to the eggs... I am still a young rooster and our story is just beginning. Who knows what the future may bring?
