first rotation:
Pumpkin
Chippy
Glacier
Puffin

Second rotation:
Penguin
B.A.
Tweety
Cocoa

Some of you may know that my Barred Rock rooster, Wings (the sweetest rooster, ever!) died Saturday night. I cried a lot because I could have helped him through whatever was wrong with him, but I didn't get medicine in time. It is eerily quiet here with no crowing rooster. The girls are lost without their "leader" wings. I have one other rooster, bt he does not crow. He's 3 years old. I think that I figured out he didn't feel the need to crow when Wings was around, so perhaps he'll begin to crow now that he's gone.
Anyways, changing the water in the chick brooder Sunday morning, Cocoa must have sensed that I was feeling sad. She did all that she could to cheer me up. As I removed my hand from the waterer, Cocoa hopped on my hand and proceeded to walk up my arm till she sat on my shoulder. She of course made me laugh and when I chuckled, she flew off my shoulder and back into the tote. Thank you, Cocoa for trying to cheer me up. lol.pngsmile.png

 

That is so sad that your rooster died! I'm so sorry! :hugs

 

Your chicks sound (and look!) adorable. :)

1 rabbit, two dogs, three cats, 40+ (number goes up & down) free-range 'mutt' hens, roos, chicks, lots of fish (tilapia) and a Jersey cow and heifer calf! Have had quail in the past.

I can't wait to introduce the chicks to the other chickens. Tweety has reminded me so, so much of Connie our one Silkie that I think they'll get along very well.

A snake was lurking near the garage yesterday.... thankfully it found no way inside.
Dadsays chicks are starting to stink, so they'll most likely have to move to the barn soon.
