Ugly Little Roo

Not counting my new chicks, I currently have two roosters.  The first, Rusty, is a stately and proud Easter Egger Roo:

The second is little Silkie Roo I affectionally call Tuk Tuk (because that's all he says--"took-took."  He even has his own theme song, apparently).

Tuk Tuk is most definitely the low guy in the pecking order and he's not exactly a show-quality chicken anyway.  I'm not sure why he turned out so sad-looking, but the one thing that makes me love this little chicken the most is his indomitable spirit.

I believe I can fly...I believe I can touch the sky!

Tuk Tuk might not be the best looking bird ever, but he's definitely got the most character!

The bird is the word,

Isn't it cool how with most true animal lovers it isn't always the prettiest one that we fall for! :)
