We live on the bayou and have Ducks everywhere. I have to plan an extra 10 minutes to let them all cross the streets when driving to work. I totally didn’t want chickens but find myself hanging out with them every afternoon 😂
Well on Mother’s Day this year (because of Covid) the only open store was tractor supply. My kids wanted to get me something so my husband introduced us to the chicken life without realizing what he was doing. They were brand new tiny chicks that fit in my hand.
She absolutely adores him! He has been her baby since fluff. I knew he was a Roo because he had tiny T-Rex wings but she just fell in love. Now I’m building an additional coop and dealing with all the drama because of her love for a rooster 🤦🏻♀️. Crazy chicken math.... 4 chickens = 2 expensive...
Did I get the breed wrong 😂😂. Do I have a Plymouth Rock or a Barred rock. I’m a teacher so maybe I just put Plymouth in there. Y’all, I’m not NOT a chicken expert. It’s kind of embarrassing at this point. My little one has spurs and is scrappy but he is so tiny!
People here are not exactly in the Rooster market but I can try to at least get rid of one. It’s a struggle because my daughter adores the Plymouth Rock (he lets her snuggle him) but my husband is all about the other one (I forget his breed). They may just both end up missing 💁🏻♀️.
I think we are getting to a point of having to rethink community free range. Will the hens still lay more eggs if they are never in contact with the roosters? If not, what’s the point in even having the loud roosters?
