The Return of the Prodigal Rooster

A few weeks ago a friend of Mum's gave me a lovely young Rhode Island Red.

Well he spent the first night here and in the morning flew over the 8 foot fence and went bush. We spent 3 days chasing him through the bush trying to catch him :)

We could hear him crowing away all around the property. I was dissapointed but I wasn't concerned as I had a feeling that he would come back.

Anyway a couple of days ago he was back near the chok pen, so instead of trying to catch him and have him run off again I just left some food and water out for him. A couple of hours later I went down and he was in the chook run with the other roosters and hens and that is where he stayed.

I took a couple of photos of him yesterday he is quite a handsome fellow and we named him "RANDOLF"      '



  1. He is lovely, Liv and he looks quite proud of himself, strutting about! :0)

  2. I had a Rhode Island Red rooster many years ago....he was very good looking, but he hated me, used to sneak up and whack me on the back of the leg and scare the daylights out of me.
