Colonel Brandon

All of our roosters have been named after Jane Austen characters.  First there was Mr. Darcy but he became to proud and was prejudice against me. Willoughby was a gorgeous guy but too wild to live a quiet life on the farm.  This time, I picked from the thirteen roosters that we had in our all pullet straight run order.  I carefully chose a nice looking guy but not the most impressive.  I looked for a quiet demeanor that might develop into a mild mannered and dignified man. He's since grown up and caring for his ladies, calling them when he finds good things to eat, reprimanding them when they stay out too late, even fighting off a hawk who dared to enter the chicken run.  As long as I don't make eye contact, he is not bothered when I trespass on his land but he does jump up on the fence and crow. For now, he will remain at Pemberley
So far, so good.
 So, Colonel Brandon it is! 

Yearling Dixie Delaware Chickens & Rooster
Mark 14:72
Immediately the rooster crowed the second time.  Then Peter remembered the word Jesus had spoken to him: "Before the rooster crows twice you will disown me three times." And he broke down and wept.


  1. A good rooster is hard to find.

  2. How cute Kim, I love the names. He is standing proud earning his good name. Have you spin any fiber from your flock lately? Have a wonderful weekend.

  3. It was great to meet you this morning, Kim. I wish I'd realized the theme of the chicken names. I'm a huge Jane Austen fan as well.

    Your place is lovely and I'll definitely be adding this blog to my reading. Thanks for having us out!
