And Junior makes NINE!
Friday evening our friend Sarah gave us a handsome young blue Ameraucana dubbed Blue Jr. He is young enough that he hasn't started to crow yet, but he does fluff up like he is thinking about it and he is trying out his mating dance with the hens who ignore him or scamper away. We are looking forward to hearing his adult crow and are really hoping that he will turn out to have a melodic five note crow. (Not all roosters do, some only have a screechy 3-4 note crow.)
Our previous two roosters were respectful of people and protective of their hens, although Shrek rode them a little too hard. Hopefully JR will develop into a respectful protector of his harem.
