There's a Fox in the Henhouse

Fox Mulder that is...

I named our young rooster Fox, since one of his flock is named Agent Scully.
You X-Files fans will recognize this...

Actually last year, I thought he was a she.
He was born hatched here, just last summer.

Click here for the Blog about this young chick's start in life.



 It's hard to believe that little chick, turned into this beautiful rooster.
Fox.



And now, he returned to his birthing hatching grounds with his own flock. 


Nine (9) beautiful hens,
who lay gorgeous eggs for us each and every day.




Side bar:  We actually have two other flocks also...with a total of 4 roosters on site.
Other roosters are: 
DiNozzo, Stewie, and Charlie Sheen (yes, he looks JUST like him...seriously!)

Until tomorrow, God willing.

What is it about chickens.Love them or hate them, they are one of natures little food stocks! We used to be egg producers.

Glad they went, so much hard work!

Fox is a very handsome rooster indeed, he looks a lot like our 'Brooster' the Rooster who takes very good care of his ladies.

Well you cant tease us with Charlie Sheen and not show us Charlie Sheen ;) Fox is very handsome. But will his and Scully's chicks be a super soldier? I loved that show, can you tell.

Good Evening Mrs. Sutherby,

What a beautiful rooster you have. I love the third photo of Fox, the one with his eye wide opened...he looks really surprised! :) I love chickens. Thank you for sharing.

God Bless,
Josh

Thanks everyone...LOL...chickens are a hoot. Yes, I'll have to show you Charlie Sheen. He travels with Berta too... I'll try and get him to stop long enough to get on camera. :~)

I cannot see the spurs on this rooster... hope he's friendly. I had some not-so-good experiences as a child with roosters and spurs.

Blessings to you...

Wow-he's gorgeous!

Thanks ladies. Saloma, he's very friendly, as are our other 3. No issues. Although I know of what you speak. Our first rooster was a chaser...he would attack everyone. I had to be on alert on the way to and from the outhouse, the grill, the clothesline...you get the drift.

That is one GORGEOUS bird. God is am amazing artist! I want to see Charlie Sheen. :)

I'll work on the Charlie Sheen photos. It will be interesting, as his "actions" are what mirror CS...hopefully I can capture it! :)

How amazing! That such a tiny chick would grow into such a handsome rooster. He reminds me a little of my Big Red.
