    A very good friend of mine has an awesome organic farm and has a lot of roosters.
    The rooster in this picture is called the garage rooster. He has had a tough life
    so far because he has been beaten
    up by the other roosters and kicked out of the hen houses at night.
    So he has become
    the garage rooster at night. He's very gentle and a really great chicken.
    I think he's the best rooster on the property [​IMG]

    When there are babies present in brooders, he is insists on watching over them at night.
    Here he is watching over 56 chicks and 10 ducklings. The ducklings are in a different
    brooder to his left. This is where he roosts every night when babies are present.
