So because the hens miss the crowing (we do have one weird hen) I have decided that this little guy is our new rooster.
His name is Rico. Handsome don't you think? I have to give credit to a friend for the name. Her real rooster was named Rico Suave and I just love that name. So thank you Joanna for the idea for my plastic fellow.
Oh and the best part is that when you make him crow he doubles up as a flashlight for those nights when predators come around. I think he is a much more useful rooster than the living and breathing kind. And I don't have to run away every time I go down to collect eggs or feed the hens. It was getting quite embarrassing when I had to always carry a broom with me to ward off the roosters.
Just a little hello from Rico!
