    So a month ago I hatched out a dozen Barred Rock chicks. Hubby's been doing most of their care as I have about 6 dozen other chicks that I'm caring for. I look into their brooder in the barn and just about fell over. 9 out of the 12 are cockerals!!

    Are ya kidding me?? 9 out of 12? This is JUST MY LUCK!!! [​IMG]

    Anyone in NE TN want a cockeral?? LOL!!

    Goodness that's quite a ratio lol It has been the year of the roo for sure!!! I'm hoping my next hatch will have a few hens (Porcelain D'Uccles and Partridge Penedesencas) after so many roos myself this past Spring and Summer. It's ridiculous.
