    Oh I love him, so cute and his owner is very cute in the pic too. I wish I could hold a rooster, all the ones I have been around are not so interested in that!

      We have had Roosters that are loud and ones that are not, so it’s hard to say! You don’t need a rooster to have chickens though and if you have neighbors that would complain, I would recommend sticking with just hens. Roosters tend to crow at anytime of day :) The girls are very fun to watch as they run around the yard, it can be entertaining!

    I love this!
    Looks like Mr. Puff and the dog may get along as well.

    Have a great Wednesday!

    ooks like a really sweet rooster. Ours is a b.u.t.t! Our Mr. Red is very aggressive and I only keep him to protect my girls. He does a good job against all the foxes, raccoons and other critters out here. How long have you had Mr. Puff?

      We have definitely had some BAD roosters! They can get so mean, I won’t keep a mean one {bad memories from my great grandpa’s trying to attack me lol!}

      they can be great yard watchers though. We’ve had Mr. Puff since Jan 2005, he’s about 7, I was a year off and didn’t realize it until I looked it up! I do believe he is going blind in his good eye, one has been bad since he and another rooster had a bad fight {that rooster went bye-bye!}, so that may be why he hasn’t been as active. The warm weather has perked him up a bit though!

    Wow, he’s beautiful young and old. I don’t think I’ve ever seen an old bird… uh, rooster. :-)

    I love the picture of you and Mr. Puff. You are gorgeous.

      Thank you! I made a mistake, he’s actually only 7, still pretty old to me though! I’ve read chickens can live anywhere from 3 – 15 years!
