This is my Sumatra Rooster “Smokey”. Not only is he a good looking fellow, he is a nice guy, sharing bugs and feed alike with his girls. Unlike many others of his breed who can be aggressive, he is happy to be around people and everyone else who inhabits “his” barnyard. His breed, which is listed as extremely rare by the Livestock Conservancy, came from the islands of Sumatra, Java and Borneo via England. I have had him since he was a day old and he was a year old when I shot this portrait of him.
