I have to start off by saying right now I do not have any chickens right now, although if everything goes right I will have my house ( in the city) sold and find a place in the country again and I can't wait! I used to have a small farm in Mo. but sold it and moved back home to my parents house , when my dad was diagnosed with 4 different types of cancer , to help take care of him and my mom, sadly my dad only lasted 14 days from the day he was diagnosed and my mom passed away a few years later and its been a couple years since she passed and have decided it's time to move back to the country ( no idea exactley where yet ) ... When I had my small farm I raised all kinds of chickens ( except oegb, no idea why either I have always wanted too) I raised quail bantams - jersey giants and when I sold my farm I had roughly 250-300 chickens , some was pure bred but some mixed , but I loved them all the same, each and everyone of them was different , even some of the same species of pure bred it would take me a minute but I could tell them apart from each other, and each had their own personalities , my uncle had given me a black rose comb bantam, he was a beautiful rooster , but my uncle warned me to always where leather boots or high tops when I would be in his pen , one day I found out why... I got done feeding and filling up his waterer and was walking toward the door of his cage and felt a THUD!!! on my left foot , so I looked down.and there he was with both spurs firmed embeded into the top of my high top shoe!!! and naturally " big guy" ( the black rose combs name... haha) was freaking out cause he was stuck so I took off my.shoe and gently pulled his spurs out... ALL 2.5 INCHES OF THEM EACH!!!! I knew when he would walk you could hear a click click click with each step but had no idea a 22 oz rooster could have spurs that big! needless to say I kept them trimmed after that haha... I thought everyone would enjoy that story, anyone else have a funny story ?
