Nature and Animals

The cock of Sumatra

Months ago, the agricultural fair Lanciano, we took a rooster and a hen bred Sumatra, generically called "Indonesian". Everything at the insistence of my son, that, poor thing, not ever bring anywhere (work, work, work) and is incredibly passionate about agriculture, of animals, tractors of farms and countryside. He always says that he will do great peasant, open a large farm where we all work in the family. That tender, certain that with two parents who love nature and animals, could not be otherwise.

At home then, discover all the features of this breed, which is a breed from exposure. Our own destiny: exhibitions! Between dogs and roosters now ... the thing is that they are particularly docile. Both cock and hen are behind like dogs, pecking at the window behind the house because they want to enter, you do well caress, and affezionano. The seller had said, because I was afraid for the baby (I know that the roosters are dangerous, to me as a child almost got caught near the eyes, when I went to collect eggs). Instead this breed is right, as well as beautiful, perfectly suited to the family, are pet and ornamental. The negative factor is that the hen lays eggs only during the breeding season, and then hatching the chicks hatch. So I'm not from eggs. To us it has made a lot this spring, but we have gathered and eaten. In the end we let 4 that hatched, and were born only two chicks.

The rooster is fighting, lovely, slender, high, aggressive towards his fellow, but docile and affectionate with people. Just think that, now that we have had a litter of Great Danes, This was close to the puppies in cassaparto and squatted on the bank to sleep there. Once we grew up playing together (were more tail feathers that peeling off for the game!). Better than that? Sing, sings, sings continuously, and we love it, gives us the idea of ​​the farm, which unfortunately we have not yet!
