Coco the Chubby Chicken


When Coco appeared at our house this spring he has a starving rooster, unable to forage on his own due to his clipped beak. His top beak won't grow back, so he can't pinch a whole lot of things with his beak. His breast only consisted of bone at a sharp point. Well, months later we've got a chubby rooster. Pieter faithfully feeds him every morning (perhaps a bit too much) and the kids bring him bits of bread for snacks here and there. He molted this summer and his feathers are even more beautiful. Before we could actually see lines in his feathers from when he was starving. He does a lot of clucking and cooing, loving to be around us. Most of the time you can just reach down and pick him up without any trouble.
