Gold Sebright Rooster

Today I got to that chicken painting, well, rooster painting. Here is the (maybe finished) Gold Sebright rooster that lived on Catalpa farm in Columbia City, IN:

His admirer off to the side there is a Delaware chicken. This proud little guy was one of the littlest guys on the farm there, but he knew he was the most attractive rooster around. He kept coming close to the camera and stopping as if he knew why I was there and wanted to pose.
The Sebright is a Bantam breed, meaning it is a miniature bird with no corresponding large fowl to which it is related, and this breed is really just kept because they are pretty and have good temperaments.
