Feathered Friend Friday: Rooster Parade

Welcome to our "Feathered Friend Friday" series. Each Friday I write a post with interesting facts, photos, or funny stories about our chickens and guineas. If you need to catch up, you'll find all the Feathered Friend Friday posts here  

I wrote about our young roosters' antics a couple weeks ago, but I have to dedicate another FFF to them today because they continue to amuse me and I can't stop snapping photos of them!


As soon as they hear me come out the back door, they run to meet me as fast as their legs will carry them. They hope I'll have a treat for them (which I usually do), but if I don't have any treats they will just follow me around for a while, stopping every five seconds to belt out a nice loud crow.


As I walked around our property yesterday evening with my camera to see all the leaves that were turning, they joined me on my trek. It was like my own rooster parade and I was the grand marshal. Everywhere I went, they trotted along behind and kept me company. I can't imagine a better end to my day.


Wait for meeee!

  2. I've got some Cochin hens that do this very thing - they follow me everywhere! And their run is different from the other chickens - it cracks me up every time. With their feathered feet it looks like they are running in old-fashioned bloomers!!

    I love your little chicken pens and houses in the background of the first picture. Looks like a quaint little chicken town! Quite lovely.

  4. They are such lucky boys to have you as their mumma! Our rescue rooster Mr Frizz, still has not regrown his wings and feathers, but when he does I'll share the transformation. Have a lovely weekend Sx

  8. I love your pictures of the roosters. I think if I ever got tired of chicken eggs I would just have roosters running around instead of hens.

  13. They are so handsome ! We now have the chicks from this Spring that are now adult rooster I think we may have to ask around at the other farm as the ratio hens to Roos is now at a tipping point. Ollie by Golly and Mr Belvadere of course are safe to stay ~ but we have at least 4 up and coming Roos that are now getting a bit randy ! lol

  14. You should get a little baton like a majorette has, and march along with the roosters following.

  15. Five baby chicks Ellie hatched,
    but none of the boys were dispatched.
    They like to parade
    on the farm in the shade.
    Pleased that their heads stayed attached. :-)

    Love, Sue and Renoman :-)

  20. They are so handsome, they do make me smile. I love, "Wait for meeee.!" I think I have a super cute rooster story coming up for you about Punky, but I have to see for myself if Cliff is right about what he saw this morning!

  21. I bet it is quite the sight to see them following you. Kind of like having your ducks in a row but they are roosters!

  22. They are beautiful, and your backyard is resplendent too. Your picture of the crowing rooster is gorgeous. They bring back wistful memories of the wild ones we once had: http://bikbikroro.blogspot.sg/2012/04/on-chickens-and-eating-right.html
