Shields' Greenhouses at Spraggs, PA, features a hidden menagerie of exotic fowl. With the owner's permission, I went up to his barn to check out the emus and peafowl. Perhaps I'll come up with a decent shot of one of those, but for now let me introduce you to one of the roosters.
I believe it's a Plymouth Rock (a.k.a., a Barred Rock) rooster.
I've been told that this is actually a Dominique
rooster. The difference is in the comb
: A Dominique has a "rose" comb, while a Plymouth has a "single" comb.

is not a particularly appropriate name for an American Plymouth Rock rooster. I'm invoking poetic license
