Oscar the Chook

Last weekend I took a rooster up to Watervale. Lynne, a friend from there, keeps chooks, and had bought a rooster from someone in Adelaide, and as I was going up to see dad, it made sense for me to pick it up. He was all boxed up when I got him so I didn’t see him till we arrived at Watervale a couple of hours later. He is a golden laced Wyandotte – a very handsome bird.
It was great to be able to do this little thing for Lynne, who has done a lot for our family over the years, and to see all her birds. They are lovely creatures. I decided to name him on the way up, and sight unseen I thought ‘he’s and Oscar’. See above and below for photos. (If you double click on the pictures they will enlarge – you get a better look at the beautiful markings that way.)
