But the Husband managed to capture a good photo of Red and keep my phone intact!
|Red, an Ameracauna. Head Honcho.|
The Husband will on occasion feed the flock out of his hand. He'll have some older raspberries, will put one in his hand, and as the flock gathers Red will make his way to the front. There is clucking and bucking, Red will take the berry, buck! buck! to the gals and drop it on the ground. One hen will pick it up and go eat her berry. Red will repeat this several times. It's pretty wild to watch.
Red is one of two birds who doesn't take any guff from the Pryia's. There is one Bernadette who stands her ground, but the rest of the flock steps aside for the Gang of Three.

Up next...whomever I can photograph decently!
