Wow, almost lost the little Black Frizz bantam rooster. He only had about half his feather and this morning he was almost dead - the other bantams had picked almost all his feathers off! The emperature was -4 degrees for the second night in a row. He was still breathing, but only slightly moving. Took him inside and put him in a box with a heating pad - that was at 9:00am. At noon he was standing up and eating! I guess he will have to be a house rooster until his feathers grow back. I wonder if I could knit a sweater for him :)
The Frizz seems to like his sunny spot in the sunroom. He started crowing yesterday afternoon when he heard the other roosters outside. Hope he doesn't start this at 4:00 in the mornings!
