I just got my chickens last night Posting a thread later with pics as soon as I get out to take some, couldnt find the camera last night. They are such funny little critters, we spent a good 45 minutes last night just watching them do their funny chicken stuff.
So, here I am, 5:30am (the rooster didnt wake me up oddly enough, just one of those mornings). Sitting here with the rooster crowing his face off and the dog barking to high heavens and whining about it. The cats are looking at me like maybe I should have a better handle on things.
How long do roosters typically crow in the morning? Will my neighbours across the lake hear? Will the city slicker neighbour who occassionaly comes up to his cottage in fall/winter next door have a poop fit? Hey, he wanted to get away from the city, roosters crowing at 5am is about as far away from the city as you can get, right? I'm helping him with the experience... right!?
I won't lie, I secretly hopedthe rooster would be a mute! Wishful thinking, who can blame me!?! Darn is he ever pretty though. Americauna (EE) rooster, handsome little bugger. We said if he bothers us he goes in the pot, but his looks may save him.
Oh hey... when the heat comes on you can barely hear him. Problem solved for a few moments. (maybe I should share this with the neighbour, "hey just turn your heat way up!")
