He's a sweet guy (at this point), allowing us to pet and handle him, for the most part. Hopefully that will continue to be the case. We were reluctant to add a roo to the flock for some time, as I harbored some painful (literally) memories of my mother's former far-from-friendly guy, George.
After much discussion, we ultimately decided to give it a go, welcoming the protection from predators a rooster offers. Additionally, we added three female Blue Wheatens to the mix when we purchased him, with the intention of R.C. siring both their and the other flock member's offspring. Plus, blue eggs!!!
We'll see how it all turns out. So far, so good. And he's looking mighty fine, if I do say so myself!
