There’s a First Time for Everything

April 17, 2013


There are a handful of milestones that are simply universal in their significance:  births, baby’s first time walking, baby’s first words, graduations, college graduate’s first time moving back in with his parents (Ha!)
Well, on a really wonderful stroll around the farm a couple days ago, the Lapinski Family was witness to a rather heartwarming ‘first’:  our rooster’s debut “cock-a-doodle-doo”!  Actually, his first words were far from cock-a-doodle-do and were more like the sound of an 93 year old doing an Axl Rose impersonation.  Mr. Rooster was a fast learner though, as it took him only about seven or 8  very strained “Cockles” before he successfully (if not harmoniously) forced out the “doodle-do”. And it bears mentioning that Mr. Rooster was a “happy accident”so it is a particular gift that we get to hear his song.  By accident  I mean that we ordered a dozen Buff Orphington hens one of them seemed to be growing twice as fast and sprouting a particularly elaborate comb on its head.  Check out the picture below and see if you can figure out which of these birds is not a little lady……..
