Acquired: Breeder (non-professional, hobby breeder)
Posted Aug 03, 2015
Atlas is actually a Bantam Cochin, very social, confident and capable, despite his natural small size. The answers of mine that were neutral, regarding egg color and size, etc....are simply because he is a small breed and since he is the roo, I can't judge whether egg characteristics are from him or the hen. There is basically nothing about Atlas that we are unhappy with.
Our chickens are free range and he participates actively.
He will defend himself if necessary, but he's not aggressive without cause.
He approaches us when we enter the yard and 'talks' to us.
He is an extremely beautiful bird.
Atlas is happy to be picked up and handled, sets on your lap, etc.
