The White Roo

Hello and thank you for all the information you provide.

Our White sex-linked roo is absolutely wonderful. He will only allow me into the chicken yard we have for them. If anyone else enters the yard, he will chase them out. lol.

When he was a baby roo, I would hold him, sing to him and he would perch up on my shoulders as I walked around cleaning out the chicken house.

He does this funny dance thing when the hens move to far away from him, where he puts one wing down and stomps in a circle. He has even done it toward me at times when I try to walk away from him in the morning.

I never thought I could love a rooster such as I do him. His name is Vanilla roo and he is amazing!

Here's to Vanilla roo!
by: Cath

Hi Jessica,

Thank you for your story of Vanilla Roo! He sounds like a wonderful rooster!

I think one answer as to how to make an adult roo more friendly, which a lot of people ask me, is to make sure that when they're young, we interact with them exactly as you have done.

Great example here - thanks for sharing!

Cath.

Louis the fearless

Ok so this morning as I was leaving for work Louis our rooster got out again and all I saw was him running into the house with a line of dogs behind and hubby behind them.

Then they all came shooting back out with hubby running at the back again. I screamed at the dogs and managed to get them to bugger off and hubby got Louis in his arms and saved his little cotton pickin' socks again.

Oh mornings are such fun.

Foghorn

by Dave
(nova scotia)

Our rooster is very gentle with his hareem. While they are all well bred, he does not seem to do much damage.

Foghorn really does look after the hens, we have 2 1/4 acres and we allow the chickens free run of it. Foghorn keeps all the hens together where they are easier to watch.

If a hen wanders off, he brings them all back together. If he finds a nice tasty morsel, he will call the hens to eat it while he watches over them.

At the end of the day, Foghorn even chases the hens back into the coop for the night - all I have to do is close it up.

When I check on them at night, Foghorn even likes a back scratch from me or my wife.

The perfect rooster!
by: Cath

Thank you so much for telling us about Foghorn, Dave - he sounds like the perfect rooster to me!

When you get as good one like that, they are worth their weight in gold.

Nice to "meet" you, Foghorn!
