Gotta nip this Roo in the bud
We don't free range but do think she gave good advice. Our rooster (12 months old) is pretty well behaved (knock on wood) except for his mating skills ... only have four hens. Planning to get a couple more when I can find what I want . We have a lot of hawks around, and neighborhood dogs ... live on one acre. Yard is fenced but have seen the neighbors huge dog climb the fence and come into our yard.
That would be so nice to live in a neighborhood where everyone has the same kind of pets. I don't think my neighbor even knows his dog can climb a chain link fence ... think that would be quite the surprise to him, and I have not told him. They are a young couple (30ish) that moved into the neighborhood a couple of years ago and it is nice to see little kids playing in backyards again. Thankfully his dog does not do it very often.
Getting ready to go to my first chicken auction on Friday ... never have been to one before so not sure what to expect. Only want two hens to add to ours, and a few bantam hens or pullets for me. Do you have any bantams in your flock?
