This is my silkie rooster,I was going to through this basket away and thought it would make a good nesting place for the silkes.They have been laying eggs in it but last night the rooster decided he wanted to sleep in it.He is the best rooster,he showed the girls that it was ok to get into the basket when I first put it in there,he went in then they followedhim. And I sold some of the mothers last week and he let the babies sleep with him that first night without there mom.They are old enough to be on there own but still without the mom they were kinda lost that first night.

He does have eyes, no wonder he can`t see me when I come up behind him.Here is another of him.

I have a male peacock like that. His hen hatched out two babies and he took care of them, even picking up food to feed them. Some guys are just keepers ;~).
