About Us
Reggie Jackson, the Pet of the Day
Name: Reggie Jackson
Age: Three years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Cornish Barred Rock, Buff Orpington mix
Home: Redding, Connecticut, USA
   This is our rooster, Reggie Jackson, he's a cross between a Cornish Barred Rock and a Buff Orpington. He lives in Redding, Connecticut, but is formerly of Litchfield. He became ill last summer, and his feet swelled so that he was immobilized. We got him tested and found that he suffers from Gout, for which he has been taking daily medication and seems a lot better. We moved him down to Redding to be with us each day, and he resides here in his custom built, mission-style coop with his "wife" Buffy Jackson, who is a Buff Orpington. Reggie is very protective of Buffy, and they sit together taking mud baths. He is a very sweet boy, who will let you rub his comb. His favorite treats are corn on the cob, coconut and worms. He is our handsome boy!
