So the other day I am in the coop taking new pics of our flock. Mick Nugget, our rooster, seen below: Begins to pay attention to the amount of time I have been in his territory. After dancing around me for a few minutes he comes in for the attack scratching my foot. What happened next! Victoria our friendliest hen and her compatriot get between Mick Nugget and myself. Victoria was quiet obviously protecting me from our rooster. I thought this was just precious. Victoria Elizabeth Victoria Another of Victoria seen here between Mick Nugget and myself when I first started taking pics. Mick Nugget better watch out. I keep him because he is so beautiful and up until that day he only went after my husband which I blamed male jealousy as the source of aggression. Truth is he is very territorial. But if he doesn't watch out I he may become his namesake if one of his babies turns out to be a rooster like I believe. Being half brown leghorn and half buff orpington, I believe this little baby has the potential to be a kinder protector for my hens. I can't complain about the fertility of Micky though as every egg that I have set thus far has been fertile. So I have only one question, is Victoria barred rock or dominque??? I was supposed to have two of each. Victoria and Elizabeth are of the same type and Mary is the other. Hatchery bred of course. Mary. Such beautiful comb, wattles, and earlobes!
