Rooster

Gallus gallus

Description:

This gorgeous Rooster was spotted cruising around the Mackay Botanic Gardens. Whether he was an escaped pet, or a local resident I'm not sure, but I know he just loved showing off for the camera! He was so cool. I wanted to bring him home for my 2 laying hens, they would've loved him I'm sure!

Habitat:

Mackay Botanic Gardens.

He is beautiful. I have just aquired a rooster and have also got 2 laying hens. They weren't too sure of him at first but are warming to him now.

Interesting his wattle and comb are very dark I'm used to seeing bright red on roosters
