Joe the Cockerell

So before all of this weekend’s Soay Rodeo and sad passing of Dominique, we had the day off and went for a lovely walk to Zs parents. They are currently the proud guardians of a very beautiful boy called Joe who we hatched last year. He is one of the 4 successful hatched by Tina who were a result of the ventures of our first naked neck cockeral and various of our layers. They wanted him to breed with their 3 Rhode Island Red/Black Rock hybrid layers so they could have a go at incubating the eggs. We took him over there a couple of months ago and he has taken a while to settle in, but is very much now part of the flock and has grown up into a lovely bird.

He is apparently pretty tricky to catch, which makes us think his most likely maternal parentage must be roadrunner Carmen, the fastest hen on the planet…
