    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.

    It's nice to hear a good story about a rooster and Pip is a handsome guy. Like your nesting box, did you build that?

    Yes I did, they're set up in my greenhouse for the winter. I don't want my little guys getting a chill, that just wouldn't do.
