Everyone should have a rooster

Lord Greystoke

Since I mentioned a rooster in my last post, I thought it only fair to show you who I was talking about.

This is Lord Greystoke, also known as Tarzan, Mini-cluck and Mr. Blue.

Until a chicken is nearing adulthood, the gender can be a mystery. We were divided about this little guy, until last week when he brought forth a weak but unmistakable cock-a-doodle-doo.

No doubt about it now, rooster he is. And a rare breed Blue Andalusian at that.  Wow.

What a delight for us, as he sits outside chapel on a railing, cock-a-doodling to his little heart’s content. I suppose the day may come when we find 5:00 am crowing to be a nuisance, but so far he only performs between 6:30 and 10:00 am.

Now who couldn’t just love a cheerful doodle-doo at a reasonable hour?
