Oct 2009 starts this story of how I got my friend Feathers. My friend Penny from backtobasicliving.com was looking for a home for a sweet little rooster she had. And I told her if she couldn't find him a home I would take him as a pet. I fell in love with him as soon as I seen his photo she has posted on facebook. So that is how I got a pet rooster. And then we had to get him a coop & pen ready as soon as we could so he could come home. My step son Scott came over to help me build a small coop for him on the weekend. And then the great friends Penny & her husband Bernie came the next weekend with our boy and to help us put up fence post and the fencing for his pen. She did a post on him called One Lucky Boy
With us working together we had it done in a few hours & Feather got to see his new home.First he got to see and spend a little time in his coop and then I let him out to check out his pen. And with in 3 months he got some girls to keep him company.

I still miss my boy Feathers so much he was a very sweet rooster and a good father to all his chicks always watching over his whole flock. I was so glad to have a son from him this year who his slowly growing into a sweet rooster who we named after his father, we are calling him 2Feathers. I hope in time he will turn out like his dad.
