    I offed my big nasty roo this morning. I wondered if the hens would miss him, they have called out for a missing hen if I take one away for some reason. No sign of them looking for him. If anything they are more relaxed and rushing up to me for treats far more willingly.

    I definitely don't miss him. It's sooooooooo nice to walk out in sandals without a rooster whackign stick in my hand. It was tons easier to clean the coop and do some needed maintainanse when I wasn't having to be on my guard all the time.

    Tomorrow I will take all the girls saddles off them and they can heal up their naked backs.

    Goodbye Mr. Owl, you will not be missed.

    No, not all of them. I have a buff orp roo who is very gentle but also a barred rock roo who is NOT. Just depends - they all have their different personalities.

    I bet the girls are RELIEVED. How was your supper, ColumbiaCritter?
