Doesn't he look majestic. The King overseeing all in his dominion and welcoming the day. He's waking the neighbours, as if it was his right. Well perhaps, like his namesake (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belshazzar) he saw the writing on the wall because life for Belshazzar is not as it seems.
I think he probably should have been called Napoleon for this proud and mighty rooster definitely has a big case (excuse the pun) of 'short man's disease'.
|Don't Laugh - he cant help it|
He is beautiful but he has a definite arrogance about him. I'm not sure if its his breed (???) or the strange distance he has between his legs but, oh my, does he strut. Its very comical considering his size in relation to the girls. Even the petite ladies (the silkies and other bantams) are bigger than him. He makes up for it in bad behaviour and even has his owner, a lover of all animals (especially chooks) offside.
Today Ella sent me a photo of a visitor to her garden with concerns that it might be after the chooks.

|My favourite Girl - Pip - she's tiny and looks like she has no legs when she walks|
All the above photos were taken by Ella - lovely, clear and well composed - thank you.
