We Have Roosters!!
My Dad, who lives in town, bought 4 straight run chicks a few months ago, figuring at least some would be hens. Surprise! All four were roosters. He decided that he wanted to keep his neighbors as friends, therefore, the roosters had to go. So, the guys moved here to the woods and are hanging out with my girls now. They are about a week older than the girls, but are so much bigger. We are holding out on naming them since we are planning to select the one who seems to be the best protector and keep him, and the rest will most likely end up in the freezer. Although . . . As luck would have it, they are the same breeds as the girls; 2 are Dominques, 1 is an Americauna and 1 is a Rhode Island Red. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could get them to raise chicks :) Ah . . . farm dreams . . .
