Kaboodle, our Polish rooster, seems to finally be settling in to his new home. There is always a certain amount of adjustment when new birds are added to the flock. They start at the bottom of the pecking order and have to work their way up.
Perhaps his unique appearance caused the other birds to pick on him a little more. He is, as my mom stated, a most distinct rooster:
Then Rachel read that Polish chickens have a hard time seeing through the feathers on their heads. To help with this some owners trim their “bangs.”
So I held Kaboodle while Rachel gave him his first feather cut. It didn’t seem to bother him much at all.
This is a much better place for such a handsome rooster.
