    Hello, my husband and I live part-time in Chiang Rai, Thailand. We are avid cyclists and love life without a car in northern, rural Thailand. Here the roosters crow night and day but their greetings do not bother me. I cannot say the same about the barking dogs! Check out my blog at...

    Ello!

    Ello there! I'm a chicken lover in Indiana with a small flock of 3 roosters and 2 hens. I know it's very off and shouldn't be this off-balanced, but it's because of a faulty sexing incident. I love them too much to get rid of a single one. It would have been worse with a 4th rooster, but the 4th...
