Gallo del cielo

 Bobbie's kitten and rooster roadshow made its second pass through Colorado yesterday.

This time she only had two kittens with her, having delivered three to new homes in Arizona.
The light grey boy kitten went to my barn buddy, Karen, so only sweet little Couch Kitten will be riding back to North Dakota.
Don't feel too sorry for her. She is Bobbie's favorite, and I have a feeling she's got a permanent home.
Now she needs a permanent name!
As cute and fun as the kittens were, Fraggle was the real star of this show.
He is the friendliest, most chill rooster I've ever met.
I love him.
And I think he loves me, too, because he left me a whole bunch of presents.
Some are too big to be truly useful.
Others are clearly meant for hobby purposes.
I don't know what I'm going to do with this, but I'll think of something.
Thank you for the gifts, Fraggle. It was great meeting you, and I hope you enjoy Mount Rushmore!


  1. Those feathers would make great 1:9th scale feather pens, or fancy hats!

  2. I have dreamed of using a bunch of tiny and real feathers to make a 1:9 scale butterfly/ Pegasus fantasy horse. 1:9 scale horse in the middle and two feet of wing on each side!

    1. A blogger/artist I follow has done several Pegasus with actual preserved bird wings. Not exactly what you're talking about, but close.

  3. Polish chickens (like Fraggel) ate usaully chill because they can't see very well! Those little feathers are so cool!

  4. I'm so glad to get the news on the emergency kittens. The light gray was my fav.

    I have used feathers (or their equivalent) for plumes on carriage horses. Too big to be useful?! You don't wear feathers in your hat, do you...

  5. Jeff would like it known that it was his idea for me to take Fraggle on a road trip. We are thinking this may have to be a "thing". As in more Fraggle road trips. ;) Though Miss Mayhem's (last kitten standing) road trip days are probably over, at least until we move again.
