August 2 – This is Romeo, the Silkie rooster.  Recently the neighbor’s son was over after borrowing our big lawnmower, and he was returning it.  We were talking when he noticed Romeo run past.  “That chicken’s wearing pants!” he exclaimed, much to my delight.  He had never seen a feather-legged species, evidently.  I just laughed.  Romeo, when he runs, runs quite upright, rather like he is standing here.  I do love watching chickens run.
