I just had a CL boy hatch a couple of days ago.  He will be looking for a home or a freezer.
Personally, I would tell him that the rooster is mean and needs to go. But I also understand family/neighborhood politics.  If the only way you can move him out is clandestinely, go for it. Today is warm, sunny, the mud has receded in the's chicken pen sort day.  Or at least the start of it.  Let me look to see how many NH boys are running around.  I did just have a NH chick hatch the other day and I think there are a few more NH eggs in the...
