MORE INTERESTING INFORMATION ABOUT LUCKA . . .
Lucka has been successful with the Rhode Island Red Single Comb Bantams that he was given by Jeremy Smith. He has a pen of Rhodie Bantams that he has bred and raised himself and he is very excited about showing them as well as showing some of his large chooks.
LUCKA TELLS US ABOUT HIS LOVELY PET ROOSTER NAMED 'ARTHUR' WHO UNFORTUNATELY DIED RECENTLY . . .
Arthur was a Partridge Wyandotte crossed with an Andalusion, crossed with a cross-bred rooster! He was my pet, he had a rose comb and was a pretty colour. He was black with purple and green. He had white ear lobes, his neck hackle was golden yellow and on his wings he had a dark red, orange, yellow with a green shade.
Lucka bought out a pencil drawing that he had sketched of Arthur, so I took a photo of it with my camera . . .
