A new, young rooster is headed to the LLF this coming weekend. A friend's niece got chicks from Murray McMurray and fell under the spell of the "Free Exotic Chick" offer that we all know is ad-speak for extra-male-chicks-that-we-can't-sell. Speaking of EMCTWCS, Bunny is now pretty much as full-sized as he will get. This does not stop him from strutting around like he is The Man. It should be interesting to see how well he shares the stage with the newcomer.
Other than being a bantam, I have no idea what breed of bantam he is. I am guessing some Asian breed, given the fancy-schmancy tail, but I was unable to find him on the MMcM site. Does anyone have any ideas?
On a completely separate note, I discovered another way to use up my zucchini! I was researching how to steam the perfect brown rice, when I came across a recipe for brown rice/zucchini squares. And it takes three cups of shredded zucchini! What is not to like? It's basically an eggy-quichy kind of dish, with brown rice, shallots, garlic, oregano, squash, egg and a little milk. I added some shredded cheese (there is a topping of bread crumbs and cheese) to the base because you can never have too much cheese in my book.
