    I'm guessing that he is an Old English Bantam, he, Pip isn't quite a year old yet and he's the perfect rooster. Maybe it's more common than I think but he loves to be held and rubbed and he's kind of partial to baby talk too. Now I know that lots of roosters don't mind being picked up and held but Pip insists on it. When ever I go into the Chicken Chalet, yes, Chicken Chalet he runs up to me to be picked up. And when I am holding my other birds, he get a bit jealous and tries to shoo them away. He shares the Chalet with 4 Seramas which he takes very good care of, he keeps the boys in line and fusses over the girls. He won't eat a thing until all of the seramas have started to eat when I give them their daily treats and has protected them before from a rooster that is at least 4 times his size. Here are a few pix of him and his flock.

    What a lovely story, and it's delightful to see how well the chickens do with the children. Thanks for sharing!

    Wish you could clone Pip, he's the kind of rooster chicken folks dream about but, seldom have. Love reading about him.
