This is especially for headbangingrooster and his mom, by request. Alot of the people from the other BYC know my flock rooster Hawkeye. I bought him last October after trying to find an adult Barred Rock rooster for months. It felt more like a rescue to me. He was kept in a muddy, dark pen in the woods with a huge turkey, who did some damage to one wattle(full of scar tissue) and his comb. My friend Kate calls it his "Art Deco Comb", LOL. No sun could reach the pen, his water was in a large tub and black and dirty. Hawkeye was about 10 months old at the time with brassy feathers,lice and favus, a fungal infection of the comb and face. A middle school kid owned him, said his grandfather used to show him (can't imagine that, from what I saw). They fed him only corn. Poor boy. I'm posting pics starting the day I got him, after his bath. He was in quarantine over a month while he got proper food, yogurt, ACV and garlic in his water. In three weeks, all brassiness was completely gone. It's back now because he spends his days in the sunshine guarding his girls,freeranging and taking lavish dustbaths in red clay dirt. He's my buddy, the best flock rooster I could have asked for. This is Mid-Quarantine: This is Post-Renovation-Freedom & Women at Last!
