meet roger. previously known as rosemary.
i know very little about chickens but i had been wondering for quite a few weeks now why rosemary (roger) had grown so much bigger than the others. i thought she (he) was just the top chick in the pecking order and got all the best food and that was why she (he) was more developed.
i had also been admiring some of the reddish feathers beginning to grow on her (his) neck.
hmmm... now i understand why!
well as you can see it took a little while for me to click. actually, that would be all of us to click.
so roger it is, we have a rooster.
i like roger, he is fun to watch and i am looking forward to hearing him crow... the neighbours might not be so impressed!
