Its been a while since my last post due to the Holidays (Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Belated). Thought I would share some saddened news for you all here at BYC. When I purchased my first chickens, I was told they were all hens. As they grew older, I began hearing at least one of them crowing. I even posting on here if that was possible. Found out I could have a hen that does not know better but everyone wanted to see pics. Well I couldn't find the time to do this yet I was able to discuss this with a gentleman at work who also raises chickens. After viewing my 5 birds, he laughed and told me I had 4 roos and 1 hen. I couldn't begin to tell you how I felt ... Well I had to get rid of at least 3 roos or they would have killed each other and I fret to think of what could have happened to the hen if they all stayed. o yesterday I gave two Doms and the RIR to my Step-Son who assured me they wont be slaughtered but will be kept as farm chickens and will be able to free range on the land he has. Not sure if this is his true intentionI wont have to clean or feed them as often I as have had to before. but none the less, I am now down to 2. A male and female Dom I have affectionately named Ralph and Alice. Apparently a man of "30 years experience" with chickens could not tell the difference between a male and female chicken or maybe he seen me coming with that big ol sign on my forehead that read "Gullible and Will Believe Anything You Tell Me". Good news is I have plenty of room in the coop now and Anyone ever go through something like this?
