    Stumpy was born with a deformity of his legs. At an early age he could only stump around and waddle at best. I gave him a chance though and kept him well fed. Since then he has grown into the little roo you see here. He is very mild, very gentle with the other birds. he does not like being held though, which is fine. He gets extra thick bedding and a little girlfriend haha. Buster and Amelia my other 2 cochins live with him too, but the ignore him.

    Here is a link to the original thread about him:
