My favorite rooster, Leggy, has seen better days.
It appears he's been mud-wrestling!
In the below photo, rain just washed away the last snow, making the chicken pen muddy.
And Leggy's been feeling his oats and fighting with the young cockerels. We are in the process of finding homes for some spare baby roosters. We used to have 2 roos, but after our 13 summer chicks grew up, we ended up with 7 more roosters. So now we have 9 roosters!
Leg is in the process of growing feathers back after a molt. He hasn't gotten all of his beautiful tail feathers yet. And it's been COLD here in MD. Leggy really hates cold weather.
By springtime Leggy will be back to his old beautiful self, hopefully!
|Muffin and Leggy. Muffin is the lead rooster, Leggy is #2. They are both ok with their flock positions. It's those new boys that are not ok with the 2 old men of the flock.|
