Animal type: Rooster
Age: 1 year
Bio: I was born at home with 14 other siblings. My mother was a hard-working hen but dad was a bit of a bully-at 2 months old my brothers (5 including me) and I were kicked out of the coop and moved into the trees around the house. Our overlords eventually found homes for my brothers because “we were too rowdy in the mornings”. After a eventful winter, I was able to move back inside, and now am the primary guardian for my 6 surviving sisters.
What is your ideal day? My ideal day starts at 3am, I make sure everyone is up, and when my overlord opens up the coop she gives us fresh veggies and dried corn. Then we (my sisters and I-I’m a family man) spend the rest of the day outside, scratching for bugs, and eating anything that grew in the overlords’ garden. I have my ideal day every day-I am living the dream.
What is your hidden talent? I have fought with an eagle (*no eagles were harmed but unfortunately that is how we lost my parents*).
What makes you different from other contestants? I have light reactive tail feathers (they may look black but, in the sunlight, they are completely teal).
What is your biggest pet peeve? When the overlords’ dog gets too close to me and my flock.
What is your ideal partner like? I’m not picky but I like a little fluff on a girls behind.
What will you do if you win? To be honest, probably gloat to the dog who lost in the last competition.
What survivor skills does you have (if any)? I have talons and I’m a great hider.
How long would you last in the wild before returning home? In the past I lived 5 months away from the safety of the coop, I could do it again, I’m tough as nails.
What would you do if you were stuck in the house with strange pets all day? SCREAM, SCREAM, SCREAM!
Which type of animal would you evict/ vote out? All the carnivores.
What luxury item do you want? A coop friendly heater for next winter.
Are you the type to cry, scream, throw your water bowl at another contestant or standby and watch gleefully? Likely both, depending on the circumstances.
