    I have a wonderful young blue copper marans, only 5 months old. His name is Jubal, and I adore him. He's a little challenged in the tail department, however. Finally a week or so ago his first tail feathers started to come in. I can't help but laugh every time I go in to sit with them, and I figured I'd regret it if I didn't take a picture of When My Rooster Became a Great-horned Owl.
    I posted this earlier with some other photos and thoughts about observing my lovely chickens, here.

    Hope you get a giggle!

    Most incredible owl impersonation I've ever seen. Young Jubal might have cornered the market on flying predator protection.

    Haha! Thanks! This photo is a little over a week old, and he still only has those two feathers! I have uncontrollable urges to glue googly eyes on his butt!
