Caesar is a Serama rooster

This week has been rooster-centric for some reason. I’ve taken more than a few frame-worth shots of Blaze, Caesar and the P. Allen Smith roolets and wrote an article I have long intended to write on chicken mating. Rooster reproductive anatomy became a shocking subject of conversation at my sister’s house during Easter dinner (don’t ask) and I knew that if my family had such confusion over and questions about chicken sex, lots of others probably did too! If you missed that article, feel free to catch up with it here! Beyond that, the weather has been perfect for anything outdoors and I hope you enjoy some of the photos I shot while taking advantage of it!

Freida, my only Silkie, has been broody and sitting on these eggs since this photo was taken on June 9th- the eggs should hatch on or about Monday!

I drink coffee for your protection.
I will be amused AFTER my coffee.
Of course it's Monday, this ain't my Friday face.
I've begun drinking coffee on Sunday nights in anticipation of Monday mornings.
Coffee ready yet?
Make no eye contact and she'll never suspect a thing.

Timing is perfect today! I must say that Manna Pro is a happy place for my girls. The sun is breaking out, we just had a downpour and the girls must be hiding beneath the boat for sure. Going out to check on them!
Cheers,
