    Here is a picture of me and Blackie my rooster. He's such a sweetie pie. He gives snuggles all the time. He loves it when I stick my fingers deep in his feathers and gently rub his skin. So soft and warm. I loves this rooster! :)

    He is a big boy. He's not even a year old yet. Only nine months old. He follows me around the yard and dances for me. So cute. His head is twice the size of the hens. His feet are the size of the palm of my hand.

    I do love that boy, and I am pretty sure he loves me too. I play with him every day. Of course, I play with all three hens too! But Blackie, he is just a special boy. What's wild is I can feel how strong he is. He is a solid muscular chicken. When he puts his claws around my finger I can feel him squeeze hard. I guess if he wanted to do some serious damage he could. So I do have a healthy respect for what he is capable of. Right now, he is loving. Hope he stays that way.

    Love him. How did he get the name Blackie? Or is it just that obvious?

    It's a funny story. Only one of his really long tail feathers is solid black. When he was part of a group of 25 other roosters he was dubbed "the one with the black tail". And I shortened it to Blackie. But he was always the sweetest of the bunch. So instead of being dinner he has a forever loving home.
