A Rooster Named Toilet

March 29, 2012 · 7 comments

I’ve had a couple inquiries/comments about our rooster lately. Yes, his name is Toilet, and yeah, we think Toilet is a pretty awesome name for a rooster, too. Levi named him almost two years ago. I’m not entirely sure where our name-gifted son came up with “Toilet”, but we approved.

Toilet is a ‘black copper marans’ breed rooster. Henry bought him off of craigslist for $5. He’s a good protector of his flock, and apparently he’s quite fertile since he’s sired all our young layers and our latest batch of chicks. He’s also quite a good-looking fellow.

He’s so beautiful! or should I say handsome? I love chickens and would love to have some one day. So in the meantime I will live vicariously through yours.

Chickens are pretty easy and pretty fun to have around.

what a fancy rooster! can you use any of his tail feathers to make fishing lures? i too, like the name, for some reason.

We’re not exactly fly-fishing enthusiast, though we probably should be. I’d imagine those feathers would make good lures, but we’ve never tried ‘em.

My niece, at one time, wanted to name her younger, yet-to-be-born sibling the charming moniker “Big Tub.” No one has ever discerned why.

Toilet works as well as any other.

I am so glad to have discovered this post. It solves a mystery on our farm.

Toilet is the spitting image of our rooster Dee Dee. I’ve never been able to figure out his breed (we bought him in a group of supposed pullets of another breed).

Now I know. A black copper marans.
