We think this is our rooster. The stories we have heard about mean roosters make us question this because this chicken is always the first one out of the coop and always greets people who go into the coop area. This chicken is really friendly!
It is filling out well and looks healthy. The chickens love the wood chip base that dominates their coop area. They dig in it all day long and make little pig like wallow holes that they roll around in. We will definitely add more wood chips once the Commander fires the chipper back up.
***Correction*** I have been informed that the above picture is the hen named Bits. Bits likes to be held and is also friendly. The statement about the rooster still remains valid.
