A baleful eye

happily, behind a wire fence.

My son-in-law's rooster.

Plumes over his back.

His hens, keeping their distance.

At Greendale, in Chilliwack, at the east end of the Fraser Valley.


  1. I love the clucky contented sound hens make! My friends in Quesnel used to have chickens and went through a series of roosters, some very pretty, some good and some mean!

    D's folks lived in Greendale for a few years and they too had chickens.

  2. That's one thing I don't hear at the cabin, a rooster. But Mr. Raven makes enough noise to fill the void. - Margy

  4. Eileen, the rooster is not as mean as he looks. The little kids, even, toddlers, like to go and feed him. Through the fence, of course.

    Ah, Mr. Raven! I heard them up at Campbell River; what a racket they make!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
