|Six has extremely penetrating red eyes|
He's a Leghorn-Andalusian cross, coming up to a year old, and is the most antsy rooster Farmette has ever seen.
Standing at around 60cm today, Six was hatched by a neighbour's clucky hen, and was surplus to everyone's needs until the sad passing of Blue Rooster. Seizing his chance, Six arrived at Farmette highly strung, big-spurred, and ready for the hard work of managing a flock of around ten across 1.5 acres entirely single-winged.
He's proven an excellent if pernickety rooster, good for leading and feeding the females, warning against incursions, and getting his wattles dirty as he stalks about the hillside overseeing things. His crow is robust, pitched somewhere in the middle range, and he doesn't hesitate to expend his abundant energy on fulfilling his duties. All of them. In triplicate.
While Six is something of a stress-head, and he and I aren't exactly friends, we're slowly building a working relationship based on mutual respect.
Six is here to keep me on my toes.
