Death Metal Rooster


Brian said...

Has anyone ever figured out what those red things are hanging down from a rooster's neck?

enjoy, brian:

A wattle is a fleshy dewlap or caruncle hanging from various parts of the head or neck in several groups of birds, goats and other animals. In some birds the caruncle is erectile tissue.

The wattle is frequently an organ of sexual dimorphism. In some cases within the bird world the caruncle has a feather covering, whilst in other cases the feathers are sparse or absent.

Arthur, man. I am so glad to see you still blogging. I LOVE reading your blog. It's been a long time since I stopped by but I just want you to know that every time I do, I absolutely DIE laughing at some random thing you post :)

Keep it up, dude
