Farmville

So this rooster just showed up at B's parents' house one day with two hens and a kitten in tow.  B's parents suspect the rooster was a fighting chicken who was let loose from a nearby farm when New Mexico cracked down on cock fighting.  Not clear on where he picked up the entourage.  The crazy thing about this bunch is that the chickens wouldn't eat until the kitten was fed, too.  A couple years later, the cat had kittens in the hen house and they all still live together in this happy little animal utopia.  I'm not making this up.  This could totally be one of those inspirational email chains.

Farmville

This isn't the greatest shot, but I had to share the attack rooster facing off with the rooster that is currently kept with the hens.  Roosters, apparently, will kill each other if they aren't separated.  Like the Highlander, there can only be one.

Farmville

The only thing that frightens a brave fighting rooster?  A three year-old.

Best story ever. It's a Pixar movie waiting to happen, the theme being acceptance and love. Gosh, I feel so warm inside... This New Mexico set of pics has blown my mind!

Julia said...

You look really lovely in the last photo, of course, and GOD, I love those Born boots. That rooster sure looks like the fighting-est rooster I personally ever did see. But then I never have seen many roosters. At least he has a big heart.
