    I posted afew days ago that I had found my beautiful Bantam rooster had begun to let Junior warm up under him. I was finally able to get a picture. I love it!!


    while I have these beauties in one area I have my Frizzle and a hen...I think she is a silkie? She was hatched with a lame leg and I could not get rid of her. She doesn't know any better, but is it safe to let her hatch babies? My grandson named them Phil Better and Ugly. They are 7 months old and he has just begun to crow this week, so I don't know if he will even be interested in having a family. Isn't this awfully old to decide to crow? Am I right to keep the 2 roosters seperated as they are in very tight quarters? Sorry for so many questions.

    The sister is under him but wouldn't stick her head out. I think this is just the sweetest thing I have seen.

    Yes it is really very sweet, but he is just drop dead gorgeous. What a beautiful Cochin roo you have. What color is he? So beautiful indeed. Look at those feathers.

    I think my rooster is the most beautiful I have ever had. He carrries himself like he knows he is awesome,,,, but he is so kind with his 2 hens and now the babies. His tail feathers are so black they take on a purple hue. He is only 8 months old. I can't begin to describe his coloring so I am sending another picture.

    I think that first photo is THE most adorable picture I have ever seen. Bar none. And it's not like I haven't seen a whole lot of photos, either!
