Just wanted to share a pic of the little red fig that adopted my frills and fed them when his eggs were taken away. he thinks he is a pappa bird and that is fine with me,no harm done, they just got a bit extra, they are just about weaned now and he is sitting on more eggs. perhaps I will let him foster one if the time is right after this clutch, he really does love sitting, and now I know feeding little ones....he is a nice bird to have in the loft, one of my favs.his white hen did not join in on the adoption though, she did'nt know what to think.:p:)

Well he is adorable and sounds like a real sweetheart.

What a wonderful asset he is, and he is tribute to your care, as he must be a happy & healthy bird, and have a wonderful life. :D

By the way...how much does he weigh?

What a cutie he is. So, are the frills the size of homers, just with frilly feathers or are they smaller? How do you hold a frill without messing up their hairdo? LOL
I would say they are smaller but look biggish because of the frills, they don't have that muscle mass like homers do. the "hairdo" just bounces back. kinda like if one used dippity do.....oh my Im showing my age. haven't thought of dippity do since I was a kid. has anyone ever heard of that?
