I caught a nice pike tonight.....not a huge one by any means...but okay. I would have took a photo but I was alone and wanted to release it safely. I shouldn't take for granted how good I have it.
At Least your aware Phil💛

Right now they are all together. (All 6 boys) But the old ladies are still ruling the place since the cockerels are young. Even Viktor is too intimidated to crow much yet, and all the other boys have been silent so far.

Once I cull the two with offset wings and probably sell the BW cockerel, wel'll see how the last 3 Orloffs do. Next spring I'll decide on the top 2. I still need to section off a portion of the run and build a small breeding coop, so the boys could go in there when it's built.

I think that goes for most people. We get so wrapped up in our daily lives we forget to appreciate our surroundings.

You'll probably have good luck with keeping them together then... I've found they do better living together if they are either totally separate from the girls their age or with older hens that will teach them manners... doesn't seem to work well though, if they live with girls their own age... at least in my experience...

Mine are already starting to pick on my girls, a little. They chase them here and there. They favor Eve also, my blue wheaten. Second favorite for the boys is my splash. They almost ignore the 2 blue girls and the wheaten girl.

They're all same age, yes? If possible, I would separate them as soon as you can until their hormone rush calms down and the girls mature... especially if they're already picking on a favorite...

Things just got ugly inin the neighborhood....it involves a dead dog laying in the middle of the street and very drunk neighbor who thinks the other neighbors dog did it.
But I never heard a fight.
He says the throat is torn out....sounds more like wolf to me.....
