You've changed from complaining to admiring them in just one post.
Yessir anybody's love these here darn roosters. How bout you missy? Ill put em in a big wrapper box and stick a coupla pencil holes in there so they have enough air and Ill send em to
Oz (need your postal code fya dont mind)
Youll love em.
My wifes already named em.
I bought about 2 dozen new little chicks just before EAster. In order to be able to tend them in their first formative weeks of life, Ive kept them in a studio room that has a nice big fireplace that we keep burning from Novemebr till May it also has nice soft lighting. Weve kept them in a big cattle watering tub with wood chips on the floor(of the tub, not the house). This has not been the greatest expwrience cause, as they got bigger, they would occasionally panic and send clouds of chicken dust in the air.(NOt healthy I know).
Today I moved them out to their permanent digs in a nice coop area located in the old milkhouse in the barn.
In the house, preparing for the big move, I scooped up as many of these pre-adolescent chikens with a trout lnding net.(Very easy scoopery) and I then stuffed them into a "Muck Boot" box. I took em out and set em up and it was then that I counted 20--21---22-, chickens. I counted the little bastards about 6 times to be sure it wasnt my advancing Alzheimers .
NOPE, Im missing 2 ******* chickens. SOmewhere in the house there are two chickens that probabbly escaped in the furor and the fog of capture.NOW, my question is. Will they grow, unmolested , into giant revenge seeking terror birds?
How can We safely sleep? Must we s;eep in shifts, armed to the teeth? Living in fear of having our eyes pecked out while in bed?
Any advice is appreciated
what did you expect from free ranging chickens? Its their nature to wander.
These two escapee chickens must have been the leaders because the others are sort of
just standing in their coop in a clot like a bunch of morons.
There were 24 original chicks. Of that there is nop doubt.
They all lived and thrived .
CATS, I forgot about the cat!!. Oh ****. Calliecat is a Maine Coon and is an excellent mouser.
I gotta get to these birds before she does.
Im missing 2 ******* chickens.
They have a delightful pattern of vocalization that lets you know that its still light out. They begin their vocalization at the first signs of an approaching day and let you know as it continues. They are very ept at that. Its a great feature for people who are unable to distinguish daylight from moonscape
