I had surgery yesterday and on my way home from the hospital my husband asked me to stop by his work. I thought he just wanted to check on me. I get there and he pulls a dog crate out of his truck...inside? A 2-1/2 month old Jersey Giant rooster!!! I was SO excited...he is GORGEOUS!! I had wanted one for months after hearing how wonderfully protective they are(we are on 111ac in the country and after something got 2 of our hens(one being our favorite gal), we rebuilt the coop piece by piece and wanted a bigger/more protective roo). They were sold out at every hatchery and I was going to order a baby this spring(along with some hens I didnt really need for company), this is MUCH better, I don't even have to wait for him to grow up before receiving the benefits of a protective roo!! I brought him home but havent introduced him to the flock yet, we will do that tonight. The kids were fighting over him, they both want him to be theirs, but he is MINE-LOL Much better than a bouquet of get well flowers...only a fellow chicken-keeper would understand that. He DOES have a "scabby comb" as I guess he was fighting with the other roos at his previous home(hence my dh's co-worker was happy to re-home him), but those will heal in time and he will make a great flock addition!!
