was the first rooster we ever had. He was of mixed origin with feathered shanks
and sported a beautiful golden duckwing plumage. When we took him home, we had
a small flock of Rhode Island Red hens for which he was most pleased to look after.
Wenceslaus took care of and survived many hens, always a gentleman, yet maintaining
his dominance among the added roosters on the farm.
a free range bird, he has survived two dog attacks and lost an eye in a cockfight
over breeding rights to some hens. Up until his death he remained a favorite of
ours, his gentle disposition and distinct crow is truly missed.
