Manly men of the farm

Animal men, that is!


The ever-adorable Tristan, enjoying the fall sun.



Errol Flynn, rooster-crowing champion!



Cock-a-doodle-doo, baby!



McGuinty the dashing Chantecler gentleman.



Watson, showing his stuff to a drake. Watson has crowed, thus I was safely able to name him (after Barbara Lardon's cat, Watson. If you haven't checked out her beautiful art quilts, visit her blog and Etsy shop. We are amassing a collection of her work and may have to add a special wing to our house for her quilts!)


Watson is one beautiful roo!

    1. The roosters are pretty good. Occasionally they have a go at each other, but nothing serious. I expected to have to rehome some of them, but so far they've been quite peaceable!

    1. I think his Daddy is Beaker, because they share some colouring, but Watson's even more flamboyant!

  6. What a beautiful smile from Tristan! The cocks are very handsome. I've never seen another one as colourful as Watson.

  7. Your Errol Flynn is the spitting image of our (late) Big Business. BB was a nasty fellow who used to attack my daughter when she was small. The 'Coq au vin' was delicious.

    1. Yeah, not much else you can do when they start attacking the humans! So far I've got all my roos under control and I hope it stays that way. They are good boys!
