I found these pictures on my computer while I was looking for something else. Meet Antonius Horribilus, also known as Antonio... He and I were excellent friends back in 2004, though no one else could get near him due to his general bad attitude and self-centered, flighty personality. He epitomized the word "cocky," hence the name "Horribilus." I had to give Antonio away in 2005 because I was moving to Grand Rapids. He was a Silver Phoenix rooster. In these pics he was somewhere between two and three years old. And here's a gratuitous headshot of Barney, the barred rock... He and Antonio didn't get along very well; Barney ruled the roost but never quite figured out how to crow like a normal rooster.
