Well, I had to send my rooster to crock pot camp on Saturday. He was a good boy and beautiful, but he'd attack every time a hen squawked -- which usually happens when I am rescuing them from the wrong side of the fence, when I accidentally step on one as they are constantly underfoot asking for treats, or someone is trying to pet them because they are cute. I was worried mostly for my elderly neighbors, because the chickens often visit them for treats.
My sister said she wouldn't miss his constant crowing. Well, she got one day of peace. One of my three month old silkies started crowing Sunday night.
Edit: Here's a photo of my silkies meeting the big girls, taken yesterday.
And a couple more pics for fun.
