    This is Mr Pecky and Annie aka Puddles! When I got Mr Pecky, he was a tiny chick that had a very pecked up behind. The feed store sold him to me for 60 cents! I think he's beautiful and him and Annie are so funny together, they [​IMG]are best friends!!

    Ummmm...I hope they stay best friends.

    3 dachshunds broke into my yard in june and killed my roo and a hen.

    Call it "nature" or not...they broke into my yard and did that and then barked at me when I got in my yard.

    I'm sorry...the pic was just a flashback for me...I pray it doesn't happen to you.

    looks a lot like one of my roosters (long-since deceased [​IMG]). i've always wondered what breed he was... still don't know though. [​IMG] Your roo is really pretty, and the dog too.

    He's a hybrid of some sort.... he has a lot of color on him for a BSL, but there is a lot of variation in BSL plumage. I've never really seen a Maran that mottled, either. I'm guessing he's a mutt of some sort.
