His name isn't Chanticleer?

(and he is a fine looking cock)

He got his name by mistake. After he hatched and began growing, I thought he was a girl. I named "her" Marlene, because she always seemed to want to be alone. Then one day she crowed, and Marlon was born.

Thank you, and I'll pass your generous comments his way. He's quite the little stud. *


* He's a purebred bantam Araucana. Weird chickens from South America that lay blue and green eggs.

Good story Glinda. I'm with the 'film it' crew. Sounds like it'd be a good laugh.

Glinda, that "tufting" thing on the Araucana looks really interesting from a genetic point of view (as well as an aesthetic pov!) Are your hens also tufted?

They are indeed, but for unknown reasons the males usually have large tufts on both sides of the head but the females often have small tufts on just one side. Additionally, the males usually have no tail feathers, but the females often do have them. My females have one-sided tufts and tails, although I did have one female that had no tufts and no tail (hawk got her ).

Essentially, purebred Araucana genetics are completely unreliable (two of my banties created a normal sized, bearded hen with a tail - how that happened I can't imagine), except for the blue/green egg gene - that one always comes through.

I'm hoping one of the two females I have now will sit on some eggs this summer, so I can enlarge my little bantam clan.

In the meantime, I got the video! It's not very good (turns out I'm an awful videographer, and jogging backwards is not my best move), but you'll get the idea.

Heeerrrrrrrre's Marlon!

Glinda - don't take this the wrong way...
But I really laughed at your cock

Thanks much for the vid - that' s gotta have a bigger circulation here somehow - let me think of another thread it should be in. And glorious to hear your voice too - very melodious. No wonder all the cocks come running...

And no, I won't tire of cock jokes in this post.

I LOVE that my cock makes you laugh!

The best effect is when he's heading directly toward or away from you, so you can see his gimpy leg flipping around - I'll keep trying for a more straight-on view.

And I really have to learn not to breathe when I'm taping - boy is that microphone sensitive!

This review on Amazon gave me a chuckle. I might have assumed that it was intentional humor except for the low rating.
