    Roo va*cu*um

    [roo] [vak-yoom, -yoo-uhm, -yuhm]

    adjective; sometimes used as a noun

    An occurrence. An event that occurs whenever you re-home excess roosters; only to have questionable chicks "blossom" into roosters seemingly overnight, to fill the void! [​IMG]





    Rowdy and Cash went to their new home on Tuesday. Today "Luna", a polish is sporting wattles that weren't there on Tuesday and "Betsy", OMG, Betsy! I just watched Betsy (11 weeks old) top one of my brahma hens, easily 4Xs his size. [​IMG]

    The funny part? She let him. [​IMG]

    The even funnier part? She then turned around and stomped his butt into the dirt. [​IMG]

    That must be frustrating!
    That's hilarious though, how she let him get away with it and then told him what for! >_<

    I'm not even going to make a smart butt comment on that one today. It's just not in me. (plus i have 9 that I "think" are girls and don't wanna jinx it) As far as Betsy goes...[​IMG].

    At 11 weeks??? WOW!

    Tell us a bit about Betsy. Size, color, pattern, breed, something to hang a name on.

    What brand vacuum cleaner do you have? Maybe call him Hoover?

    I love it! [​IMG]

    Betsy is Thor's son, dark brahma over light. Looks just like TJ, only smaller; white with black highlights. We watched him mount one of the SFs this evening. Gotta give the kid points for style. He's alot less clumsy than TJ.

    Linda, I have two german shedders. They kill vacuum cleaners about once a year. Dyson's would be a waste of money. Eureka doesn't sound like such a good name. [​IMG]

    Well I can emphathize with rooster vacuum. I just put an add in the auction to rehome my extras.
    Also, have 1 Momma with 2 new babies and I am not sure what sex the chicks are yet. 2 other broodies with eggs getting closer to hatch day. Sure hope I get more girls than boys. Girls are easier to sell.

    If you were close we could do a swap. 8 fully feathered boys for one trahma. [​IMG]
