The First Crow

This is Greenback. When he hatched he was my favorite hen as he would come right up to me & eat right out of my hand. Then I noticed he was steadily becoming un-hen like. I think he hatched in Aug., I disremember but that hatching was born when the sun was on it's way down. The sister hen has yet to lay an egg but something Mike & I thought was so neat was that Greenback gave his very first crow at 1:00 pm, a half hour after the solstice occured. The crowing around here has been pretty nonexistant since Oct. but since the 21st, it's coming back a little in the morning. Thank you God for the sun!
