TIAS Day 8 and Day 9

Day 8

Day 8 of Jane's TIAS

Day 9 is below.  See the split rings we added today for the breast?  I just love this happy little white rooster.  Look how my third thread (red) turned out to be the comb !!  How cool was that?!?!

Day 9 of Jane's TIAS


We have our own pretty roosters running around our farm.  Below is Speckles (snacking on cat food the boys set out for the cats this morning) lol.

Our own De Colores rooster, Speck

All these roosters have me humming the spanish folk song De Colores.

The verse about the rooster goes something like this for the English speaking tatters: from
Sings the rooster
Sings the rooster with his kiri kiri kiri kiri kiri
And the cluck hen with her cara cara cara cara cara
And the baby chicks
And the baby chicks with their pio pio pio pio pi
De Colores and so must all love be
of many bright colors
to make my heart cry
De Colores and so must all love be
of many bright colors
to make my heart cry. is a link to the song that talks about the rooster in spanish.  Just be warned, If you listen to it, I’m sure it will get stuck in your head as well!
De Colores! Shanan

  2. Thank you. He is quite sweet. His dad, Pete, is a Silver Americana, and the mother, Snowflake, is just a small little white hen with black speckles that showed up at our farm last March during a snow storm. We have no clue where she came from. None of the neighbor’s have chickens! She acts like she was raised inside a house. For the first several days she followed us around and tried to come into the house with us and the dog!! She still tries to sneak into the house if the front door doesn’t shut all the way. Her son seems to think he needs to crow from the porch railing each morning after I let them out of the barn, lol.
