~ Music to my Ears .........

Yesterday morning as I was walking to the chicken coop , I heard a rooster crow , actually I heard 2 crows. They weren't really loud , but some one's definitely crowing. I'm not sure which one was crowing , although it may have been both since I heard 2 crows. As I entered the chicken coop , they were standing on top of the nesting boxes , but they didn't crow anymore. They haven't been roosting with the girls , they've been roosting on top of the nesting boxes. It was music to my ears to hear the crowing , it brought back memories of my Grandparents farm.

I've picked out a name for the rooster on the left , he's brave , so I'm calling him " Geronimo ". The other rooster is more of a gray color and has white ear lobes , I've thought about calling him " Ashes " or " Charcoal " , but I'm not sure about those names. Anyone have a name suggestion for the Roo on the right side of the pic , should I give him a chief name too?

Update ~ I decided to go feed and water the chickens this morning , before I edited and publish this post , as I finished up and was getting ready to come back to the house , I noticed Geronimo puff up and start crowing , he crowed about five times :)

Roo would be cute but if you

Chief Thundercloud.

Or make up one like
Chief Gray Feathers.

I like Chief Little Roo.

I went and looked up Chiefs
and found another site with
a lot of Native American names
of Chiefs.

A Pawnee Chief was named:

La Roo Chuk A La Shar (Sun Chief)

I am sure you will find a name that fits him.

God Bless You and Yours!!!

Rock-a-roodle-rooooooo! I love this picture. I love chickens. I never miss the chick exhibit at the state fair. So many different beauties. Roosters are so proud! xoxoxo

Hi Judie ~ I agree , Roosters are beautiful. Rock-a-Roo would have been a cute name , but I've decided to call him " Chief Little Roo ". I'll keep that name in mind if I ever have another rooster.

Hope all is well with you!
