Day 23

Day 23

A fine portrait of my rooster, Red.  Red spends his days dutifully watching over his flock of 9 hens.  They scavenge for food all day, never resting unless they take a dust bath in the sun.  Red has a variety of clucks he uses to talk to his ladies.  I’m still trying to figure some of them out.  He’s quite the gentleman as when he finds a particularly tasty bug or plant he calls his hens over and lets them have it first.  This is my first year with chickens and they are fascinating to watch.
