Miss September 08

Name: Yoshimi

Breed: Rhode Island Red

Name one person, dead or alive, you’d like to meet: Joan of Arc

Tell us a bit about yourself: I’m a physically active bird. I like to run about and forage, it keeps me in shape and just makes me feel good. And a girl has to be able to look out for herself, doesn’t she?

Tell us, what happened to your tail? One night, an animal got into the coop, and I knew none of the other ladies around me could do anything about it. I took the creature down a few pegs, while those, ‘manly roosters,’ sat in their roosts and shivered. It will grow back, but in the meantime, scars can be sexy, no?

What I look for in a Rooster: I’m a physical girl. It might sound silly but that’s really what is important to me. I’ve been looking for a big, strong rooster, the kind that I’m sure will keep myself and my eggs safe.
