Here's Leggy, the white leghorn cockerel (with a guinea hen in the front). I know, I'm not too imaginative when it comes to names. I didn't want to name my chickens, I didn't want to get too attached. We aren't going to keep all the roosters, and we seem to have quite a few. But nicknames got started, and the names have stuck. Leggy has become my baby. I think he is beautiful. I have been trying to make sure he doesn't grow up to be mean, because I don't want to have to ever get rid of him!
Here's Leggy in my lap with a few of the hens.
And here is Leggy sleeping in my arms. He is the most hyper young chicken, but all it takes is a few neck rubs when he's in my arms, and he goes right to sleep! Most of our chickens can be put to sleep like this!
We have 5 chickens that look like this - dark with a white face. We were told they were Bantams, we call them "hawks".
