whilst I was out there,
...and since we're so used to them, I paid little attention.
|Toby born (hatched) 10/01/12|
I walked closer to the barn, and sure enough ~ my little Toby was crowing his heart out!!
|being rewarded with cracked corn ~|
I immediately called Peter to tell him ~ you know what P said?
|our handsome boy-bird.|
chickens grow faster....
see his neck?
he's sprouting his hackle feathers ~
he also has an amazing rainbow of colors in that seemingly-black coat of his...
blues, purples, greens ~ browns, rusts & blacks.
|...his comb & wattles are coming along nicely, too.|
they haven't accepted him as a chicken...
I don't think he knows he's a chicken-boy either....
as a matter of fact, when he crow'd rather loudly this morning,
he jumped back like he startled himself!!
(I had to laugh)
