    You are not alone, but we are a distinct minority here. Men tend to relate to poultry in a different manner than women.

    While I don't have chickens anymore, I have high hopes of keeping them in the future.

    When I was younger, we kept lots of chickens. My mom had the laying hens, and my dad raised a couple of hundred meat chickens every year.

    The only time a chicken came into our house was for Sunday dinner. The only animals we named were the dogs. We never traded poultry with anyone. That would have been dangerous disease wise.

    We never mixed breeds or generations of animals. Each flock had its own chicken yard. They were half and quarter acre bermuda grass chicken yards.

    It was more of an economic enterprise to us; they were food, not pets.

    Well your not the only one here, but we are in the vast minority. In fact in another thread i believe AKBB and myself were referred to as "Stringy old Roo meat" [​IMG] Maybe the reason why their are so many "hens here could be as complex as the fact that maybe Hens are more social than us roo's, and has to do with the inter-mingling of said hens within a given flock.. or could be as simple as it pertains to "The Egg Thing"...uumm, if ya get my drift?

    Sorry ladies, i couldn't resist [​IMG]

    No but the roosters sure do make a lot of racket crowing for no reason [​IMG]

    (just had to add that as my roo stands around for no reason other than to listen to himself-his girls sure don't pay him any mind [​IMG]).​
