    Every afternoon the sun shines a certain way and every afternoon Steele's Shadow appears.

    He's always a bit surprised to see his shadow.


    Who is that?

    Once the raised hackle zombie face fails (save that photo for Halloween), he just has to accept that patience is the best way to handle the shadow.

    Yeah, those wattle are something else. I've never had a rooster so....um...well endowed and it's funny to watch him flip them about. While he's not the king of his castle, he's learning to keep his head above those lethal beaks of the hens.

    Thanks for looking!
