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.
