Isn't he beautiful? When he's outside he appears white with a melt of butter on him. (I don't eat meat, so there are no worries there!) One might say "pearlized", but I would NOT! (If that doesn't mean anything to you, then please read this story.)
He no longer hops up on my shoulder. In fact, he no longer comes anywhere near me. Last night when I wanted to close the barn, he stayed out in the yard and I had to chase him into the little catch chute where he is cornered and I can grab him. He totally freaked out. I kept saying "hey, Spot, it's your old buddy here. Don't be scared, I'm just putting you inside for the night."
Kind of makes me sad when they grow up and don't need you any more.
Since Ulani got Spot's sister a while back, he's alone in his generation. He really doesn't have any chicken friends to hang around with, though I expect he'll start to be friendly with the ladies soon.
Then he won't need me at all.
