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.
